Why locals love it

There is a chapel, Nossa Senhora do Monte, that is known to be frequently visited by pregnant women to seek divine protection for child-birth. On an old wall, some tiles remember a country of discoverers, emigrants and soldiers: “Boa viagem. Lisboa espera por ti.” – Have a nice trip! Lisbon awaits you.

Why you should visit it

With a half-moon’s shape and a masterful light, it has great conditions to observe and photograph. The views include São Jorge’s Castle, Mouraria neighborhood, Carmo Convent, Monsanto, Tejo estuary (and “Mar da Palha”, translating Straw’s Sea, a basin in the Tejo estuary near its mouth). All this locations are pointed in a beautiful tile panel.

Special tip

One of the Lisbon’s viewpoints least visited and also the highest point in the city, but probably the one with the most dazzling views of Lisbon.
