Miradouro de Santa Catarina information
Students bashing out rhythms, pot-smoking hippies, stroller-pushing parents, and loved-up couples – all meet at this precipitous viewpoint in boho Santa Catarina. The views are fantastic, stretching from the river to the Ponte 25 de Abril and Cristo Rei.
If you’re coming from Cais do Sodré, it’s fun to take the arthritic, 19th-century Elevador da Bica funicular up chasm-like Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo to reach the lookout. At research time, the viewpoint was closed and under renovation. Next door, however, you can enjoy the same vista over drinks at laidback Noobai Café .
