The first is
considered the highest: Nossa Senhora do Monte belvedere (located in Graça).
The name of this viewpoint has origin from the Chapel of “Our Lady of the
Hill”. This is the perfect spot for sun lovers, photographers and… pregnant

The second is known for its beautiful garden. From São
Pedro de Alcântara belvedere you have an excellent view over the Baixa
district, the area around Avenida da Liberdade and the Tagus River. Basically
this place is a garden with a panoramic view and next to it there is the Gloria
Elevator, a funicular that has been taking passengers up and down the hill
between the Restauradores Square and Bairro Alto since 1885.
The third is popular
for its two greenhouses. EDWARD VII PARK is a central park, a huge green and
pleasant area where some great events take place, such as Lisbon Book Fair (one
of the oldest cultural festivals) or music festivals (such as Lisb-On). This is
a great place for nature lovers since you can visit the hothouse (with the most
exotic plants) and the greenhouse (filled with tropical plants, ponds, and
endless varieties of palms and cacti).
The fourth is
blessed by the sun. Portas do Sol belvedere ("the gateway of the
sun") has a glamorous view overlooking the Alfama rooftops and the Tagus
River, at a short distance from Saint Jorge Castle. This is where you have the
best sunrise views in town, and blue is the predominant color in here!
