Miradouro Portas do Sol
The miradouros Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia are a short walk from one another, and both offer views over Alfama. The view from Portas do Sol, however, takes in the National Pantheon, the Tagus River, and the 17th-century São Vicente de Fora Church. The Portas do Sol café and bar is also a spacious and comfortable location where visitors can enjoy a variety of drinks (from coffee and tea to juice to beer and cocktails) and snack/lunch food items, while enjoying the oftentimes sunny, blue skies and surrounding palm trees. The best part? You can get there early and stay well into the night (it closes between 1 am and 2 am, depending on the night), enjoying a gorgeous sunset in between.
