Miradouro de Santa Luzia

Interesting
This little terrace atop the hill of Santa Luzia with its modern basilica (a place of pilgrimage) is an ideal viewpoint. Preceded by a large square and a monumental staircase, it provides an excellent view over the Tagus, the harbour, the rooftops of Alfama and its maze of small streets dominated by the bell-towers of São Miguel and Santo Estêvão. The outer walls of the church of Santa Luzia are covered with small panels of azulejos showing the Praça do Comércio, Lisbon's capture by the Crusaders and the death of Martim Moniz in São Jorge castle. On the wall marking the south side of the square is an azulejo showing a general view of Lisbon.
