Best Miradouros Viewpoints in Lisbon. Visiting the various viewpoints is one of the favorite activities of tourists.
My intention was to do a whole post on the best Miradouros in Lisbon. The single best reason to see it are for the views. It is not technically a miradouro but it has some of our favorite views in Lisbon. Make sure to pay to go up to the top deck I think it was 1. Miradouro da Senhora do Monte I thought that the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte had nice views over the center of town looking towards the river.
Miradouro de Santa Luzia One of the most famous, iconic viewpoints in Lisbon. I came here 25 years ago and sat down on a bench alone.
It epitomized Lisbon for me. Below we saw construction and cranes everywhere. Miradouro das Portas do Sol A few minutes walk from the above mentioned Santa Luzia miradouro, this lookout lacks in atmosphere but actually has better views. Miradouro Jardim do Torel Getting up here is best done taking the Lavra elevator above.
A 5 minute ride will take you up the hill from where it is a 3 minute walk to the Jardim do Torel which is a pretty little park. I enjoyed it for the views of incoming planes. This page locates most of the Miradouros for you.
I found it useful. Miradouro de Santa Caterina which everyone says is the place to see sunsets. Dirty and the views are nothing special. Our feelings on Lisbon. For us however, as full-time travellers who stay somewhere for a month or morethere were aspects of Lisbon that left us with a bad taste in our mouths.
We stayed on Rua da Alegria in the Bairro Alto. What looked initially like a comfortable apartment ended up being our worst ever Airbnb experience. We have never stayed in a place where you can actually hear people talking through the ceiling.
Never mind when they walked around with high heels, dragged furniture around, dropped stuff on the floor or came home at 2am to start fighting there was one night where we thought we would have to call the police.
We found out that most of the building including the apartment upstairs was rented out by their owners as Airbnb apartments. Neighboring buildings also seemed to be full of Airbnb apartments. This was our first experience with it. The first photo top left is what you see featured prominently in the Airbnb ad.
Staying in this apartment a month sucked. Tourists and the local experience: The amount of tourists in Lisbon was astounding. Walking through the Baixa was like walking through a traffic jam of tourists.
Walk the Alfama, or go to any tourist site, and there were lines and crowds everywhere. Take the famous 28 tram at 8: We were more likely to hear French or Spanish walking around than Portuguese. With the tourists came the riff raff: As mentioned above, we were never propositioned for drugs as much as we were in Lisbon.
We met friendly locals when we joined the gym …but those local experiences were rare during our month in Lisbon.
What I remember from my previous visit to Lisbon 25 years ago was how charming it was. Lisbon was all about charm. It may have been rough around the edges at the time, but it all felt authentic.Long Day's Journey into Night Thesis Statements and Important Quotes Below you will find four outstanding thesis statements for “Long Day's Journey into Night” by Eugene O'Neill that can be used as essay starters or paper topics.
