Overview

If you are not sure of Lisbon’s layout, this belvedere provides a useful reference map, made up from ceramic tiles to help you identify areas and places. Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara is a popular attraction, offering some of the finest views across the city skyline. It also has a manicured garden for the visitor to appreciate, while taking in the scenic sights.

The night vistas are as spectacular in their own way as the clear day panoramas, particularly if you visit this belvedere on a warm summer evening preferably with a full moon providing back lighting. This belvedere borders the Bairro Alto area, and its landscaped terraces include the busts of some famous citizens.

This attraction has a romantic feel about it too, perhaps this has to do with tinkling fountains and soothing water features. From here, you can see the Graça belvedere directly across the valley, as well as the prominent Church of Penha de França while the Old Lisbon stretches out in front of you – with the castle mound with its impressive fortifications along with the Sé Cathedral easily identifiable.

A pleasant way to start or end your visit here is to use the famous yellow funicular Elevator Gloria, which transports locals and visitors alike in the area.  This historic form of transport has been carrying passengers faithfully since 1885.
