Probably my favourite viewpoint of Lisbon, and I've been to a few during my stay there! You can get a great view of the entire city.

Very nice palace with beautiful rooms! No line for getting in and nice art exhibition of Mirò too. Loved the throne room and where they still hold important lunches or dinners.

This palace can be seen from the harbour and is within walking distance (if you like walking 2k uphill) on top of one of the hills of Lisbon. The facade is a little bit underwhelming, but once inside you'll see one of the most beautiful...More

This palace tells a vivid story of King Luis and Queen Maria Pia. The elaborate interiors have been or are in the process of being beautifully restored. Very good detailed descriptions. A great deal of access. Worth going off the beaten path.
