Everyone who visits Lisbon knows that the city is right on the Tejo river, the lifeblood of the city and quite possibly the reason it was built in the first place. But most visitors never head across the river to look back at the city from the other side. And it really is an amazing view. Historically the “industrial” side of the river, Cacilhas and the old warehouses at the river´s edge have unfortunately fallen into disrepair, almost all of them abandoned, and you only really see local fishermen, or visitors who are searching for something different, walking the water´s edge on this side of the river.
The easiest way to get here from Lisbon is to catch the ferry from Cais de Sodre and then walk along the river. As you head towards the bridge (the one that looks like the Golden Gate in San Francisco) you will come across 2 restaurants (Ponte Final and Atira-te ao Rio) right on the river´s edge with amazing views over the city and the bridge, the location itself makes for an amazing experience and if you´re looking for something different to do while in Lisbon, I recommend an al-fresco dinner here.
