Walking along the narrow uphill streets of the Alfama, you often come across squares and lookouts that we would not expect but which are, instead, one of the characteristics of this neighborhood. One of the most characteristic and most beautiful is the Miradouro de Santa Luzia, from which you can enjoy a splendid view of the Tagus River and the red roofs of the Alfama. The ancient Arab walls of the city, the Dome of Santa Egracia, the Church of Santo Estevao and the two white towers of the Church of San Miguel are also visible. The peculiarity of this terrace is its arched structure, completely covered with plants and flowers, very colorful in spring and summer. The color of the flowers is supplemented by the typical Portuguese tiles, the azulejos, which cover the walls.
This is one of the most romantic and picturesque corners of Lisbon. A terrace under flowered arcades surrounded by gardens and covered with azulejos that overlooks a landscape like no other: the Tagus, the ancient Arab walls and the expanse of the Alfama roofs. It is a paradise for photography lovers and it is still frequented by locals today: families with children, art students who come here to draw, card players and couple in hand. - https://www.lisbona.info/cosa-vedere-lisbona/miradouro-santa-luzia/
