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.

My husband was the one who found out about Monte Serrat, I have been to Santos many times in my life, and I had never gone to Monte Serrat. It was a totally awesome experience. You go up in a trolley, when you get up their, the views are exquisite, you see the whole city, their is also a little... More

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.

This place will give you a feeling of top of the world - Santos city from this hill looking Huge and modern. You can go on the top by your feet or by special train. On the hill you will find an old cafe with good photos on the walls, so you can feel a real atmosphere of this specific... More

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.

I thought this attraction was pretty poor. I'll explain why - - The cost to use the tram to go and down up is huge! $23R!! More than my lunch that day! Considering it's only about 150m I would have walked had it been possible. I've been on cable cars and trams that go more than 20 times that distance... More

From on top of this mountain you have a beautiful view of Santos, the port and the ocean. The steep tram ride up and down is a nice added touch.

I have being here several times past years. To enter Monte Serrat you can go by cable train, i think the price to go by this train is a little bit high but it is also very special. On the top you arrive at the former Casino. A beautiful old style building where inside the history of Monte Serrat and... More

This was the best part of my trip to Santos. You ride a funicular to the top of the mountain and go into an old historic building. The views of the city and port are spectacular!

The antique cable car up to the Mont Serrat is an adventure. Great view down to Santos from Mont Serrat, a walk down to Santos is relaxing and locals leaving there are very friendly.
