The Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara terrace offers one of the best panoramas over Lisbon overlooking the Baixa district. On the opposite hill is the Alfama and Lisbon's castle. Here is a wonderfully manicured garden complete with a water fountain, busts of heroes and gods from antiquity, such as Minerva and Ulysses. The terrace is located close to the top of the Gloria Funicular and is one of the most frequented of Lisbon's viewpoints.
The Elevador da Glória funicular ferries patrons between the Calçada da Glória just off the Praça dos Restauradores and the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara. It's part of Lisbon's transport system and you can use Carris's travel cards and the Lisbon Card.
