4 Rooftops para visitar no Inverno
Lisbon, the city of the seven hills, perfect for late afternoons spent on rooftops with beautiful views.
Whether it's summer or winter, rooftops are a great place for locals and visitors to relax, chat and have a drink, while enjoying an amazing view of the city. You may think that winter is a terrible time to visit a rooftop, but you’re actually wrong, because the Portuguese capital has some great suggestions for you. Despite the chilliness that can be felt at the top of a building, hotels can be a great option to get together with friends in a more sheltered environment, in the evening after work or even on a weekend afternoon, just to catch up. Here are four suggestions of hotel rooftops that you should definitely visit this winter:
Rooftop Hotel Mundial
This is probably the most recent rooftop to pop up in the capital’s historic center. In the iconic Hotel Mundial on Martim Moniz Square, this renovated space has heating and blankets, allowing you to sit at the top of the hotel and admire the view over Terreiro do Paço and the river, without leaving downtown Lisbon. At sunset, the view is even more special and you won’t even notice the cold.
This rooftop could only be part of a hotel because it’s a "covered" rooftop – can a rooftop be covered? Yes it can! The bar at the Sheraton Lisboa, right above the 20th floor, has both a bar and a restaurant with huge windows that practically give you a total view of the city, from the riverside to the business area where the Sheraton is located. The big advantage is coming here when it’s colder and facing your chair outwards, while you have a drink or a cup of tea and try to identify the most famous buildings in the capital.
If you want a bit of change in scenery, head over to Parque das Nações and visit the top floor of the Tivoli Oriente, which is only a few meters away from Gare do Oriente. Overlooking the riverside area of the former Expo 98 zone, it’s the most cosmopolitan rooftop around and the stage of so many business meetings at the end of the day. A good choice for those who appreciate more modern settings, with easy access and the bonus of enjoying a snack while waiting for the DJ to top off the night.
Bar Terraço Limão
Close to Avenida da Liberdade you’ll find the H10 Duque de Loulé's bar. It has a more sheltered area for the cooler days and an open area for summer days. The tile decoration gives it a traditional Lisbon feel and, although it’s a small modern space, it definitely deserves a visit.
Sobre a Rita Amaral

With a degree in Journalism and working in Public Relations and Marketing, she writes about various topics on various platforms (including her blog: "Erre Grande"): Career, Communication, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Writing, Travel and Food.
