Lisbon is a city that is built upon several hills. Naturally, it offers an amazing view at every hour of every day of every season. While missing breath-taking sights is not very easy in Lisbon, it boils down just to find the perfect spaces to experience perfect sunsets. Depending on the time of the year, sunset might be around 6 pm or 8:30 pm, but since the probability of a clear sky is higher in the summer, it is more likely to enjoy the sunsets in Lisbon to the fullest in summer. This guide offers several places throughout the Portuguese capital to experience perfect sunsets.

1Praça do Comércio

Praça do Comércio of Lisbon is a space near the water, so it is possible from here to watch the sunset over the blue waters. The famous bridge named Ponte 25 de Abril is also visible from here which adds to the view.

2Tram Number 28

Picturesque Tram 28 of Lisbon is a great place to enjoy the moments of sunset in. It might be hard to synchronize the trip with the sunset, but if it is managed somehow, then the sun-seeped, narrow, cobblestone streets of central Lisbon provides its visitors with an unforgettable treat.

3Miradouro de Santa Catarina

This option is another spot starring Ponte de 25 Abril. From this spot, sunlight reflecting on the waters of the river creates a magical scenery. However, the downside of this spot is that it tends to get a bit crowded.

4Belem Tower

Already (according to most people) magnificent on its own, Belem Tower becomes even more beautiful during sunset. Also, this spot is very popular among tourists, yet as the time nears the night, crowds tend to go to other places and Belem gets quieter. Since the sunset is an event that is best enjoyed quietly, Belem gets some extra points.

5Miradouro da Senhora do Monte

This place of the capital is positioned higher than other spots on the list, so it offers a panoramic view of its surroundings, and when the question is about sunset, a broader view is always better. This place, too, is famous for sightseeing. Thus, expecting a crowd is a good idea, but it by no means disrupts the awe of the atmosphere.

6Parque Eduardo VII

This is probably the most famous place where tourists are suggested to watch the sunset, and it is rightfully so. The park is already designed to praise the sun and it provides its visitors with amazing views of the city.
