Did you know that Lisbon is known for its many hills? In fact, the city is built on high ground and has no fewer than seven hills (hence its nickname, "the city of 7 hills"). These seven hills represent as many viewpoints (called miradouros), the best known being Miradouro da Santa Luzia and Largo das Portas do Sol.
To get away from the tourist cameras, you'll need to head away from the city centre, towards the Marques de Pompal district, to reach the Eduardo VII Park. You won't want to miss this park with its huge statue of the Marquis of Pombal, famous for helping to rebuild Lisbon after the 1755 earthquake.
