Nice cafe with a lovely view, surely worth the 20-30 minutes drive up. Cafe had an upgrade in 2021. I usually come here on weekend days after walks around Dare (the cafe can also help arrange a guide i.e. to Tuda Tiris waterfall) Cafe has good coffee and fresh juice as well as sandwiches. Dare is also a great place to buy plants along the road
Popped in here as part of a drive around Dili tour. The view and coffee here was spectacular. Highly recommend
The view was out of this world. If you are visiting Dili I recommend the trek up to this area to view the city and coast line as a whole. Totally worth it.
Great place to hang out. Fresh, clean, nice. Really good place for pictures. Kids love it. It's a 30min drive from Dili. Road is fully tar except 50 meters. Super winddy food. Lovely for a family trip. Pizza 5-10$ Sandwich 3$ Chips 2/4$ Drinks 50¢-3.50$
Strong experience seeing the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and more. Definitely recommend visiting. Also the building itself is beautiful. Know that photography is prohibited inside. I recommend booking tickets in advance or visiting in the morning.
