Whenever the weather is sunny and warm, there are 50 terraces in Lisbon that we suggest you to visit for a great ambience and magnificent view.

41. Linha D'Água
Attracting families and people of all ages, this terrace is reflected onto a pond that is surrounded by vegetation. It's above Eduardo VII Park, by the El Corte Inglés Department Store.

42. Eléctrico Banana Café
This terrace (photo) belongs to a restored tram that used to go through the capital up until 1988. It is now a coffee shop parked next to the Jerónimos Monastery. It serves smoothies and snacks all they long and it's often used by tourists as a spot to sit down for a bit while examining their guidebooks.

43. Rua Vieira Portuense
A small street in Belém that has several restaurants - most serving traditional Portuguese cuisine, specially grilled fish - in colourful traditional Lisbon houses from the 16th and 17th Centuries.

44. O das Joanas
Meaning "Joana's", this small coffee shop serves specialties from different countries. It's on Intendente Square, next to Fábrica Viúva Lamego, a unique building completely covered in colourful tiles.

45. Praça de São Paulo
After being neglected for several years, this 18th Century Square is coming back to live because of the kiosk of traditional refreshments and its beautiful terraces.

46. Jardim da Estrela
This is one of the most beautiful and amazing gardens of Lisbon, where you can relax with a coffee or a light meal. It has a terrace by the entrance, with a view to the Basilica, and another one by the gate, on Avenida Álvares Cabral. There's also a nice playground for the children to play in.

47. Esplanada do Torel
From midmorning to just after dinner, this terrace serves sandwiches, salads and wine. It's a great place to simply relax and enjoy a light meal after climbing the hill from Avenida da Liberdade in the Lavra funicular.

48. Pastelaria Suíça
The first Portuguese coffee shop to serve croissants is now known for having a great variety of pastries - and it's always full of tourists. Pastelaria Suíça has two terraces, one in Figueira Square, facing the castle, and another one in Rossio, facing the entire Rossio Square.

49. Bar das Imagens - Costa do Castelo
Relatively close to the castle, this terrace is a great place to have a snack during the afternoon or a drink during the evening.

50. Brown's Coffee Shop
The terrace is an excellent spot for when the sun comes out, but the interior is also very attractive and comfortable. Brown's Coffee Shop is usually taken over by teens and young adults.
