What people say

"One of Lisbon's favorite viewpoints is Miradouro da Graça, located right in front of Convento da Graça, on one of the city's hills. The space is small, but with the necessary infrastructure and view to enjoy the tour — which becomes even more special in the late afternoon. A good option to rest on the terrace and have a drink while viewing some of Lisbon's main tourist attractions from above, including the Carmo Convent Ruins, São Jorge Castle, the 25 de Abril Bridge and all of Lisbon's downtown area. To get to Miradouro da Graça, just continue walking up the hill after passing through the Alfama neighborhood. It's not very far and the path, through the Graça neighborhood, is quite welcoming. Another option is to use public transport to access this highest part of the city or include the viewpoint on a tuk-tuk tour, the small strollers that are spread across the Portuguese capital."
"Miradouro da Graça is a stunning location in Lisbon, where you can enjoy magnificent views of the city and sunsets. Located in the Graça neighbourhood, it offers a peaceful and relaxing environment. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a wide panorama, with the red roofs, historic churches and the Tagus River in the background. It is the perfect place to enjoy a wonderful sunset, while relaxing on one of the benches or on the stone steps. The serene atmosphere and stunning views make the Miradouro da Graça an ideal refuge to contemplate the beauty of Lisbon and recharge your batteries at the end of the day."

Complete guide with attractions and venues where to eat/drink, get those very special souvenirs from (bespoke & local brands and markets) and catch a beautiful sight…or just your breath after walking up and down the hills of this marvellous city. Lisbon is all about art, colors, architecture and GOOD vibes! 🇵🇹💚 💡General tip: combine Lisbon with visits/stays in Sintra and Porto. Highlights: 🚋 Trams - The Lisbon tramway network is a system of trams in operation since 1873; it presently comprises six lines and has a length of 31 km with 63 trams in operation (45 historic "Remodelados", 8 historic "Ligeiros" and 10 modern articulated trams). Tram 28 is famous because happens to go past many of the city's most significant landmarks in districts like Alfama, Baixa and Estrela. Because the route also uses some heritage-style tram carriages, it has become a popular tourist attraction in the city. 💠 Azulejos - is a form of Spanish and Portuguese painted tin-glazed ceramic tilework. Azulejos happen to be one of the most distinctive art forms in Portugal and are found on the interior and exterior of churches, palaces, ordinary houses, schools, and nowadays, restaurants, bars and even railways or subway stations. 🧼 Soaps - Oprah Winfrey said they're one of her favorite things, so the world is now also a fan of Portuguese soaps. But they're not recent products. They've been made since the 1800s and are 100% natural. They've maintained beautiful Art Deco and Art Nouveau packagings from the 1920s, and have become one of the favorite gifts to take from Portugal. 🥮 Pastel de nata - is a Portuguese egg custard tart pastry, optionally dusted with cinnamon - looks like a cross between a custard tart and a cake; created by monks in the Jerónimos Monastery, a major tourist attraction today and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 🍲You also have to try these traditional dishes: Bifana, Sardines, Caracoletas & Prego na Pao, Alheira de Mirandela, Queijadas. 🧉Ginja - also known as ginjinha. This sour cherry liqueur is a tourist favorite but has sweetened locals’ palates for a long time too. There are establishments in Lisbon entirely dedicated to selling this sweet beverage made with Morello cherries, a variety of spices, and plenty of sugar. Nowadays, ginja is also served in edible chocolate cups. While you may choose among white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, dark chocolate does indeed pair beautifully with the super sweet, almost syrupy drink.
