Torre de Belem



Centre Cultural de Belém



Lisbon's trademark seven hills are peppered across the cityscape like lofty guardians of colour and history. Capped by a collection of terraces known as miradouros (viewpoints), a must-see web of no-filter-necessary views over Lisbon, the Tejo and beyond is formed. Our favourite miradouros – Portas do Sol, São Pedro de Alcântara, da Graça, da Nossa Senhora do Monte, Santa Luzia and, of course, Castelo de São Jorge – all offer stunning spots to get your bearings and while away afternoons overs bicas (espresso), elegant glasses of Touriga Nacional or refreshing pitchers of sangria, while rubbernecking the city's stupendous horizons.


Start of the Half Marathon, 10Km and 5Km will be beside the Tour, Torre de Belem, running through the streets of Lisbon to finish in front of the Centre Cultural de Belém (C.C.B.) a few metters of the "Mosteiro dos Jerónimos" Monument.
