Awesome view to see Lissaboa from the other side of the sea. Best way to get a good view of the Ponte 25 de Abril Bridge 👌🏻 Just get an uber and go there sightseeing 2 in 1 😉

Beautiful monument with spectacular panoramic views of Lisbon. The best way to get there is to catch a ferry from the Lisbon maritime terminal then catch the bus at the other side. The last bus stop is at the monument. A good zoom is a...More

Even as a non-religious person, I was very impressed by this statue/structure! It gave great views of Lisbon too!

This is a good place with amazing view. The Shrine of Christ-King is, without a doubt, a historic reference for the spirituality of the first half of the XX Century in Portugal, and alsoan important reference for the history of the same century in the...More

I think it's all covered in the review. Turn right out of Praça do Comercio and follow the river. You will eventually come to Cais do Sodre where the Ferry Terminal is.
