This is a gem. We took the 28 Cablecar from across the city, which is a worthwhile trip in and of itself. It stops at the church which is on a hill overlooking the river Tusca and the city. Admission is surprisingly low for what...More

Not to be missed if you like old/ antique tiles. A great collection. Worth paying the entrance fee and go up to see the views.

You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants

spectacular option for those looking for a more
