The Most Beautiful Spots In Lisbon

Lisbon, you are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. But, in case you do want to be somewhat prepared, I’ve listed the most beautiful, chill and delicious spots in this surprising city.

Wether if you’re visiting Lisbon or living there: let me save you some time and serve you upon a plate right now: the most fine spots in the Portugese capital.

If you read my previous blog, you already know Lisbon offers a lot of beautiful miradouros – also kown as viewing points.

Mesmerizing Miradouro

Miradouro Santa Luzia consists of a few chill spots: there’s the lower deck, as I like to call it, and a higher deck. Both offer a sort of garden-ish feeling, where you can chill out sitting on the colourful walls covered with flowers and plants. Here’s the catch: if you walk to the upper deck part and keep on walking towards the end, you may find a pitoresque stairway that leads to… a small, cozy, cash-and toiletless cafetaria. This cafetaria de Santa Luzia offers the best view in town, if you ask me. Um café com leite e um pastel de nata, por favor!

Cristo Rei Rocks

Another must-see when in Lisbon is the Cristo Rei statue. It may look like it’s at the other end of the world, but it is easily (and cheap) to reach by ferry and bus.

When you arrive at the bottom of the statue, you are already blessed with an amazing overview of the river and Lisbon itself. I recommend to take the elevator towards the statue. Even though you may think you will have the same view, trust me, you will not. The mighty Christ statue, sunset vibes and an overview of the bridge, river and city will give you some serious chills (and make you feel like you´re in Rio de janeiro!)

A delicious meal that won’t cost you a thing

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting hungry over here. Although there are some tourist traps in each city, in Lisbon you have some more chance to find a really good restaurant that’ll give you the best meal of your life. Yes, I’m giving some credits to the underrated Portugese food. Farinheira, bacalhau a bras, salmao grelhado,… you will not regret skipping out on Mc Donald´s for one of these delicious dishes.

Rockin’ rooftop bars

Last but not least, I’m taking you a level higher right now – literally. Although Lisbon has a lot of ups and downs, hills and stairs, steep streets and elevators – and other synonyms for a hilly landscape – there are some benefits attached to this. i am talking rooftop bars and restaurants. Wether they’re expensive, touristy, local, cheap or hidden: if you look properly, you can find one on almost every building.

TOPO bar has the best view ánd vibes. Hiphop, house, rnb: whenever you get at this cozy yet modern bar, you won’t be sitting around much for long. Visit during sunset and you’ll be surrounded by a wall of golden/ pink Portugese residences.

TOPO rooftop bar

PARK bar may be the most popular rooftop bar in Lisbon. Owing its name to the real life parking this bar is built on, be ready to get dancing whilst holding a (pricy) drink in your hand. Their style of music is a mix of hiphop, trap and oldschool hiphop. Offerng a view over the city with the bridge and Cristo Rei statue in the distance, be sure to pass by this bruising piece of nightlife.

These were a couple of the many goregous and relaxing spots Lisbon has to offer. I would like to share more of them with you, but now I’m craving some farinheira, a glass of red wine and some city views during sunset. I’ll see you at the next blog for some more inspo. Até a vista.
