“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

Lovely View and the Church is impressive although quite modern.
Do not pay to go up in the tower.You will get a ride to nowhere and then have to walk down the stairs.The caretaker conveniently speaks no English

“How often does one get to ride in a funicular?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

The view from above is gorgeous! There are two bars/restaurants, the cathedral (of course), and a park in which to stroll, or sit quietly.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

A beautiful way to go to Santa Luzia Church. For those who don't like hights, don't take the funicular if you really don't want to, but the time you take inside is totally worth it!
