One of the most popular overlooks is Miradouro de Santa Luzia. Not only is there a magnificent view of the old Alfama district and Tagus River, the terrace where I stood features bright pink bougainvilla on the pergolas and beautiful blue and white tile murals on nearby walls.
This view is from the highest hill in Lisbon, with the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge in the distance. The white monolith to the left of the bridge is the Christo Rei (Christ the King) statue, inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
From Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara, the Castelo de São Jorge (Castle of Saint George) is visible on the opposite hill.
This lovely park provided a great place to recuperate from the steep climb to the overlook.
