Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara

16Aug

Today we introduce you to the “Miradouro” (viewpoint) of São Pedro de Alcântara. Located next to Bairro Alto, it was built in the XIX century and today is one of the must see places for travelers coming to Lisbon. We invite you to sit down on the garden benches and admire the view over the Avenue (Liberdade), Graça, the Castle, the Romanic Cathedral and Tagus River. Right next door, be sure to visit the Church and Museum of São Roque (1553) in Trindade Coelho Square. This church with an austere facade features an amazing marble interior, gilded carving and tile panels.
