Our personal favourite viewpoint is the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte,which overlooks the castle and was traditionally where young lovers would meet to watch the sunset,safely away from prying parents.The best tradition of Lisbon as below.Another great view point is the Miradouro de Santa Catarina,which overlooks the Tejo Estuary and is guarded by a statue of the Adamastor,a mythological monster from one of Portugal’s most famous poems.
In need of a boy,girlfriend or better partner?Then the tradition surrounding the statue of Saint Anthony that stands in front of the Igreja Santo Antonio is for you!
The tradition states that you will find a new(or better!)partner if you are able to throw and land a coin in the book of Saint Anthony on the statue in front of his church.This tradition originates from the fact that Saint Anthony is the patron saint of lovers(and Lisbon)and this church was constructed on his birth place.
