With the most ideal location for those who have just explored the Alfama and the very impressive Castelo de Sao Jorge, Portas do Sol is unsurprisingly a very popular lunch spot. With an expansive terrace with views to die for of the city and the Tagus river, this place is worth a rest inbetween hectic sightseeing. The food is OK – I would recommend the smoked salmon focaccia – but it’s better to just come for a beer or a glass of wine, while you drink in those views.
