Street View Spot – Lisbon peeking I

One of the things I love the most about Lisbon is the possibility to find spontaneous landscapes that reveal themselves before your eyes as you turn a corner or pass by an unsuspicious and often narrow street.

Here is one for you, cool to photograph and enjoy as you wander around the city center.

These “street views” are possible because the city is anything but flat. Full of ups and downs due to its hills, you can be at one end and see the other side clearly, and you don’t have to be at an “official” viewpoint to do so.

In the picture, at the front you can take a glimpse at the Basílica da Estrela (check out the article ‘Basílica da Estrela‘) while you are just nearby Bairro Alto (one of the greatest neighborhoods to go out at night), and Chiado.

For this spot you can either start at Santa Catarina Viewpoint (check the Adamastor article), or at Calçada do Combro. Either way you’re bound for a treat with this view, as you experience the city’s hills.

Try and catch the sun setting and, while you’re there, why not visit a nearby amazing rooftop? (check the Park Bar article)
