Up on the hill above São Vincente de Fora Monastery is the residential Graça district, reached by tram 28.

By Graça's church (one of the city's oldest, built in 1271 with a Baroque interior and 17th century tiles) is Miradouro da Graça, a splendid viewpoint offering a panoramic view of the castle and central Lisbon. The open-air café and its relaxing atmosphere is a favorite with young locals, especially in late afternoon. During the summer it remains open well into the night.

 An even more extensive view over the city, and in particular over the castle, is from Miradouro da Senhora do Monte. This is the highest point in the city, and its serene atmosphere attracts young couples.

A small image of the Virgin standing in front of a chapel dedicated to Saint Gens overlooks the city. It can be reached by turning left on Largo da Graça from Miradouro da Graça into Rua Damasceno Monteiro, then bearing right up Calçada do Monte.

the tranquil Graça district is located at north of Lisbon’s picturesque Alfama in the city centre, with great connections to downtown via metro or the famous Tram 28. Graça is known for its tranquil vibe, thanks to its church and peaceful views from the Miradouro da Graça viewpoint or the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte; the highest point in Lisbon.

You’ll find plenty of local shops and cafés in the Graça area, or it’s a pleasant walk down to Alfama or Baixa Pombalina. Public transport takes about 5 minutes to the city centre..
