This square has privileged views of the Alfama district and the river Tajo. In the square is Santa Lucia Church and photo shows Commerce Square before the earthquake that devastated Lisbon in 1755. You can also visit the Museum of Decorative Arts, but mostly it's best to rest on San Jorge Castle street and admire the stunning views
The Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara is a garden located in Lisbon, at Misericórdia.
Is located on Rua de São Pedro de Alcântara, near Bairro Alto.
There is a map in tiles next to the balustrade, which helps to identify some places in Lisbon.
The banks and shadows of the trees make the belvedere a very nice place. To get to the point of view, you can choose to climb the Calçada da Glória or climb the Elevador da Glória, which leaves you very close to the belvedere.
In the garden, the monument of Costa Motta, erected in 1904, represents Eduardo Coelho, founder of the newspaper Diário de Notícias.
Between Bairro Alto and Principe Real, it's quite spacious, has two drink stands, benches and a lovely view overlooking the castllo, the entire lower area of the city, part of the river and Vasco Da Gama Bridge. Usually there's music and in the summer there are evening events including live bands and other activities for young and old.
The Graça is the highest hill of Lisbon, from where you have spectacular views of the entire city: the bridge of April 25, the castle, etc. It's next to the Castilla de San Jorge, one of the main city attractions, and has a cafe to relax as you watch dusk falling over the roofs of the Portuguese capital.
I had heard about the charm of the Tower of Belem, so one of my days in Lisbon I made a visit to that part of town. The tower is pretty good, but to my surprise it turned out to be an area with several points of interest. This monument was one of my discoverers in Belem.
