Awesome view over the city

The highest point in Santos in a quite favela is the best spot to overview Santos. The panorama is just breathtaking. You can reach the top by funicular or foot

It's a really nice place to visit. You get to check it out a panoramic view of Santos City. Up there used to work a casino (since a long time ago it's forbidden in Brazil). It's kind of expensive to eat up there, so, do it before or after.

Catch the fernicular up to the top of Mount Serrat and you will have great views of old Santos town to the North and modern Santos and the sea to the south. The chapel atbthevtop is also worth a visit.

Monte Serrat is the highest point in Santos from where one can have an all around view of the city, the ocean and the port. Magnificent views in fact, and there is a tram that takes visitors up and down the steep hill, very interesting.

Enjoy the ride in the vertical tram and visit an old casino and a very cozy church. From there you can see Santos harbor, the beaches, streets, etc

Take a funicular up the side of Monte Serrat to the old Casino and get a great view of all of Santos from old town to the beach area. Visit the historic church and have a cool breeze before heading back down.

The ride up Monte Serrat is surprisingly expensive (25 BRL) compared to other attractions in Santos - most museums charge between 5 and 20 BRL. But the views are impressive and the 30 mins in between rides is just enough to tour the summit (and the machine room) before taking the ride back down.

Enjoy the ride in the vertical tram and visit an old cassino and a very cozy church. Choose a sunny day and don´t loose the nice view of all the city.
