MORE INFORMATION

Observations: Situated in Jardim do Alto de Santa Catarina, since 1883. In the past there was a cross that indicated sailors the way to the port. One can get to this belvedere via the Bica elevator.

Description of view: It is said that in November 1808 the French General Junot helplessly witnessed the departure of the Portuguese Royal family fleet to Brasil, from this viewpoint, located next to Chiado quarter. There is a Portuguese idiom, which means frustration, based on this historical episode: “ver navios do Alto de Santa Catarina”, that is to say, “watching the ships go by from Santa Catarina Viewpoint”. The view over the river, Lisbon port and downtown could not be better. Right next to it, at an inferior level, there is a cosy and modern terrace.
