A recommended tour in Lisbon by foot from Square Martim Moniz to a viewpoint cafe offering wonderful panoramic views: Miradouro da Graça

If you like walking and splendid panorama views:  start from Praça da Figueira, where the metro stops or from Praca Martim Moniz, then walk up Calçada dos Cavalheiros to Largo do Terreirinho. This is where the Mouraria neighbourhood starts. Taverna do Poço is a real traditional Portugese restaurant where you can have a 5 course meal (cheese, soup, main course, desert, coffee and wine) for only about 10 euros. This restaurant is only open during the day until around 18:00. There’s other small restaurants on the square opened till later.

  5. One of the best places in Lisbon. Walking almost empty streets, narrow, up and down, passing by the old building covered with azulejos… And Taverna do Poco is still there, the owner is very nice – I gave him pages from this website I printed for myself, he showed it around, very happy:) Taverna is a very special place – it is decorated with all kinds of bric-a-brac, has quite an atmosphere, you may see a well going several meters down, showing the age and history of the place.
