5 Places with the Best Views in Lisbon

The 5 places with the best views in Lisbon by coffee and a view

Known as the San Francisco of Europe because of its hilly streets, Lisbon offers innumerable vantage points from which to view this incredibley picturesque city.

Although the list could go on, these are the top 5 places with the best views in Lisbon:

Castelo de Sao Jorge

Sao Jorges Castelo is one of the top 5 views in Lisbon, by Coffee and a view

Many locals would disagree because of the fee required to enter the castle, but this was my favourite view of the city because it was completely uninterrupted. Aim to be there for when the castle opens for the best crowd-free views.

Miradouro das Portas do Sol

This city view is only accentuated by the warm purple blooms that appear in the hot summer months.  Tile decorated benches surrounding a fountain make for the perfect frame for your photos.

Park Eduardo VII

Although located outside of the main historic area, this park provides spectacular views of landscaped gardens and rising buildings of the upcoming new city.

Miradouro de Nosa Senhora do Monte

The top 5 places with the best view in Lisbon by coffee and a view

One of the most popular viewpoints in the city, I found this one to be overcrowded and with similar views as the Sao Jorge Castle only of a different angle. What made this place special was the small church located here. Inside hides a special “throne” that is supposed to bring good luck to expectant mothers should they sit on it.

Rooftop Bar of H10 Duque de Loule Boutique Hotel

Hotel H10 in Lisbon is one of the top 5 places with the best views by coffee and a view

Who doesn’t love a tasty cocktail and a good view? One of the best I found in the city was the rooftop bar at the H10 Duque de Loule hotel. Complete with cosy blankets to snuggle up in if the evening air is cool, this is the perfect spot to watch the sunset.
