Superb views

The views are fantastic, 360 degree view of Lisbon, quite easy to get to, just take a ferry and a bus, takes roughly an hour from the city centre.

There is a great view of Lisbon from the base of the tower. The plaques on the walls are really interesting. As I am over 70 I did not think I would live long enough to reach the head of the queue.

We enjoyed with the panorama but it was enough difficult to take a picture of the monument to Christ. There's also a monument to Mary in front.

We took the bus across and them a walk up to the Sanctuary, recommend this just to see a little more of the city than the inside of the taxi. Went through nice lanes and roads to get there.

The view front he top is great on a nice day, not sure if it worth the 5 Euro lift riders the free view from the terrace is almost as good. Buses leave promptly at 5 to and 25 past the hour.

Loved the place, best view of Lisbon from above. Worth the trip. I took the ferry from Cais Do Sodre across the Tage to Cacilhas, then turned left right after exiting the ferry, and walked along the river with lots of abandoned buildings. It gives an edge to the walk. towards the end of the street, there are 2 nice... More

What needs to be said. It cost €5 per person to take a lift to nearly the top. The view is awesome. The lines are sporadic, very minimal for us late on a Monday in January. If the air is clear, not cloudy, it's hard to beat. There are even chapels (at the top and bottom) for those that may... More
