Funkiest viewpoint of all , Santa Catarina , is for those who want to party with beer and tapas ( a modest € each at the small bar ) , one of Lisbon's most sympathetic with friendly Lisboners with musicians , nice aromas and on a hill where you can enjoy the atmosphere.
The view is not typical : open landscape in front of you , just across the harbor and beyond the Tagus , the lights of the bridge and two benevolent arms of Cristo -Rei .
Behind Camões , Rua do Loreto separates the Bairro Alto of Santa Catarina. Facing terrace , the river, and the 25 de Abril bridge there is a stone figure of Adamastor , a mythical sea monster of the epic " The Lusiads . " It also is a nice café where the locals go to enjoy the view of sunset or dawn on the Tagus .
