The Magic of Lisbon at Sunset
The Santa Justa Lift is a popular tourist attraction in Lisbon. Which, is why I decided to pass on my first trip to Lisbon. Recently, however, I was in Lisbon again and got an insider tip: you can actually go the back way (by an old church, ask a local and they'll know) up so you don't pay for the view, and it is quite majestic, especially when the sun is casting shadows on all of the red-roofed buildings and the Sao Jorge Castle near sunset. There is a cafe with live music when you go this back way, a perfect spot to recline at and finish off the view before returning to ground.
