10.2.2022-To get to know Lisbon, you must know its 7 hills and endless viewpoints. For that, we leave you here tips for an itinerary that will leave you even more in love.
The "seven hills on which Lisbon was built" from São Jorge, São Vicente, São Roque, Santo André, Santa Catarina, Chagas to Sant'Ana are a landmark of the Portuguese capital's identity. On each hill, there is a viewpoint with magnificent views of the city so don't miss this itinerary.
São Jorge- It is the highest hill and covers the neighbourhoods of Mouraria and part of Alfama as well as the area of São Jorge Castle. Here there are the first houses that gave origin to the city. It also has one of the best views of the whole city.
São Vicente- It is where the centre of the Alfama neighbourhood and the São Vicente de Fora Church are located. It is also the home of the Feira da Ladra flea market (in Campo de Santa Clara), a great place to go on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Good shopping!
Sant'Ana- Perhaps the most central hill in Lisbon. It starts at Praça da Figueira and ends at Jardim do Torel. From here we can see the São Roque hill from a different perspective! It is known as the "hill of health", as the Hospital of São José was built in Martim Moniz at the base of the hill.
Santo André- Covers the Graça area and the Calçada de Santo André. An excellent opportunity to catch the 28 electric tram and visit the Miradouro da Graça!
Chagas- This is the name given to the area around Largo do Carmo, with its convent. Its name is given by the sailors of the route of India, in tribute to the wounds of Christ. Here is a special place: the Santa Justa lift.
Santa Catarina- Going from Largo Camões to Calçada do Combro, the Santa Catarina hill has one of our favourite places to watch the sunset: the Adamastor, also known as the Miradouro de Santa Catarina.
São Roque- Last but not least, São Roque hill. Neighbouring the Santa Catarina hill, it is home to the Miradouro São Pedro de Alcântara and the Bairro Alto.
