Viewpoints in Lisbon
Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara
The Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara is a garden located in Lisbon, at Misericórdia. Is located on Rua de São Pedro de Alcântara, near Bairro Alto. There is a map in tiles next to the balustrade, which helps to identify some places in Lisbon. The banks and shadows of the trees make the belvedere a very nice place. To get to the point of view, you can choose to climb the Calçada da Glória or climb the Elevador da Glória, which leaves you very close to the belvedere. In the garden, the monument of Costa Motta, erected in 1904, represents Eduardo Coelho, founder of the newspaper Diário de Notícias.

Viewpoint of Santa Lucia
This square has privileged views of the Alfama district and the river Tajo. In the square is Santa Lucia Church and photo shows Commerce Square before the earthquake that devastated Lisbon in 1755. You can also visit the Museum of Decorative Arts, but mostly it's best to rest on San Jorge Castle street and admire the stunning views
Viewpoints in Vila Nova de Gaia
Vila Nova de Gaia
I visited Oporto the night of San Juan (June 24, 2011). I never imagined that a city could move me in such a way. It turned out to be full of people, crowded places, music, bonfires in the streets, the smell of grilled sardines, wine and happiness. I do not know how Oporto is on other dates but I must admit that on the night of San Juan, Porto is wonderful and full of life! The vantage point of Vila Nova de Gaia is fantastic because there is peace and calm there. I have a lovely view of the river Douro and the city as the sun went down that will be in my memory and heart forever!

Santa Luzia Elevator
If the view from the Mirador de Santa Luzia is impressive, they are even more so if you climb to the top of the Basilica . This is possible thanks to a lift which is accessed from the back of the temple, the raising and lowering costs 2 € but it is definitely worth it. At the top there are two viewpoints, which can be accessed by a small flight of stairs from the elevator landing. From here you can see the entire city and the statue of Lima, virtually a 360 º.

Sierra de Lousá
Recently, I visited The Sierra de Llousa a couple of times. It is 20 km from the village of Lousa and reaches an altitude of 1200 meters leading to San Antonio Trevim and San Antonio de Nieve, the two highest peaks of the mountain range. It is accessible by car, as the mountain road is in good condition. On the way, you'll see a stop atop the mountain village "Cerdeira" that climbs up. Here you'll see a few village houses, some under reconstruction, all surrounded by a magical landscape. A few miles up from the original Talasnal village, you can stay for lunch (make sure to book for weekends) in the farmhouse, at the Tilena Restaurant. Upon returning, you can get to a lookout and enjoy the beautiful panorama of Lousa.
Viewpoints in Faro
Faro Cathedral Bell Tower
From the bell tower of the Faro Cathedral one can enjoy the best views of the city, as it is one of the tallest buildings in the town and has a perfect location, just a few meters from the sea. To access the belfry you have to pay the admission to visit the cathedral, 3 €, and walk up a few steps, but it's worth it. Up top are some binoculars which you can use to get a closer look at the lagoon, and the bells are within hands reach.
Viewpoints in Funchal
Pico do Arieiro
The Pico do Arieiro has been there for some time and is considered the second highest on the island of Madeira, after Pico Ruivo which is almost 2000 meters high (1860), it takes 30 minutes to get there by car. It appears almost as a lunar landscape with rugged mountains and hillsides covered with eucalyptus and laurel trees. When ascending, at about 900 meters, you can pass through clouds before reaching a sunny landscape of volcanic rocks. At the top you can see the valleys and mountain ranges with sharp peaks at that time I took few photographs, which invites me to come again and enjoy nature and the beautiful scenery which covers the island. It's worth seeing Dos Lavradores Market, in the center of Funchal, the Cathedral or Sé, the botanical garden and of course take a long walk through the port of Funchal. Oh I forgot to tell you, the island is very nice but beach lovers say there are no beaches, but it has some natural pools prepared seaside.

Miradouro das Neves
Although from there, you don't see the sun across the Atlantic, this high spot in Madeira is good place to end the day. Here, Lorenzo is softly hidden behind parts of Funchal. To the left, the ocean caresses the docking pier, where many cruise ships that arrive to the capital of the island are. To the right, the white houses that flood the slope gradually lose their intensity. It's a nice show. I really enjoyed it, even with the soundtrack of speeding cars. Recommended to go up by car or taxi (about 20 euros, maybe a little less). You can also go up by bus, as there is a stop right there.
Viewpoints in Sao Miguel
Miradouro do Cerrado Das Freiras
The highway to Sete Cidades offers spectacular views of two lagoons that sandwich the town, la Laguna Verde (green) and la Laguna Azul (blue). Though the lagoons are connected, their colors are perfectly distinguishable. This viewpoint is the last before reaching the town. I recommend walking along the edge of the Laguna Verde
