One of Lisbon’s meeting points, it has great views and a vibrant atmosphere (especially when the weather is good). It can be a great starting point and an even better finish line for your neighbourhood explorations. Interest points include Vila Berta, the bars Botequim and Damas and the educational assistance and social support society Voz do Operário – there is no shortage of places to show your foreign friend who just landed in Lisbon. And you get the stunning views of the city to boot: from the castle all the way up to the river, including Mouraria and Baixa Pombalina (downtown Lisbon).
