Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcantâra is one of the more touristy of Lisbon’s miradouros. Situated at the top of the little yellow Gloria elevador, this split level miradouro has a stunning panoramic view of Lisbon towards the Castelo, the Sé and the river. My favourite view from this miradouro is on a clear summer’s evening when the moon is full and you can watch it rise from behind the castle and shine silver on the river below.
The upper level of the miradouro has a kiosk with an esplanade where you can have coffee, snacks and drinks. Towards the edge of the miradouro are some picnic tables. These tables are often frequented by large groups of Portuguese men playing cards, but during the summer nights is a place where groups of people gather to enjoy the view and some drinks with friends.
The only potential issue with this miradouro at night in summer is that it becomes very windy so always remember to take something warm to wear if you are going to sit up there to watch the lights of Lisbon.
