Why locals love it

The official name for this viewpoint is Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, a much known poet that spent many of her days admiring Lisbon and writing poems from this spot. In her honor, you can find a bust and a plaque with one of her poems; however you should learn Portuguese in order to read it.

Why you should visit it

Situated on the hill of Santo André, with a view that can reach the old neighborhoods like Mouraria, Alfama, Downtown and the Castle and also the river and 25th April Bridge. Have a drink in the esplanade facing Lisbon’s roofs and try to identify churches, monuments and whatever you can distinguish.

Special tip

If you don't want to climb neither catch the crowded 28 tram, catch bus 712 (Marquês de Pombal) or 726 and leave at Sapadores and then walk a bit.

Great place to have an amazing view of the old part of the city, namely the Castle, Baixa and Chiado.
