5 Lisbon Viewpoints & Wine Pairings

Lisbon is nicknamed “A Cidade das Sete Colinas” (The City of Seven Hills). Lucky for us, that means plenty of miradouros, meaning viewpoints. They are great spots to catch a glimpse of the city, especially at sunset. We here at FnEZ are pretty fond of sunsets, wine, and viewpoints.

 Most viewpoints have a small esplanada (outdoor cafe) where you can buy coffee/beer/wine/pastries etc. If want to save some cents: BYOB. There is no problem with walking around Lisbon sharing a bottle of wine with your friends, or try Ginginha , the local specialty!

So, before going bar hopping in Bairro Alto, or having drinks on Pink Street, check out these amazing places to be at sunset (and what you should have in your cup!) with Free and Easy Traveler on our 10-day adventure: Lagos to Lisbon!


Praça do Comércio

Pair this refreshing scene of the Tejo River with an red Alentejo wine! Coming from one of the wine regions in Portugal of the same name,  Alentejo means “the other side of the river”.

Miradouro da Senhora do Monte

After walking all those hills, pair this view with a local favourite: ‘green wine’. It’s fresh, fruity, and a little bubbly making it the perfect refreshment after a hot hike through Lisbon!

A pristine view like this would be great with a fresh, crisp white from the Douro wine district in the North!
