Once you have finished visiting the town a short ride up to the top of the hill gives you a great view of the city below and county side beyond. The area around the summit beyond the church is clearly used for picnics and between...More

Nice ride up the mountain. The panoramic views are outstanding and the Pena church at the top of the mountain is worth a quick visit. There is a convenient car park at the cable car lower station so there is no need to park in...More

The cable car to the top is quick and not too expensive. The area st the top is a great place to explore and not too crowded. The views are amazing! Highly recommend if you are visiting Guimaraes

In fact they mention this as the highlight of the entire Portugal trip. The Park at the top and view from the top of the ride is as much as sight as the ride itself.

The ride back to the city provides an excellent view of Guimaraes and its environs. Although the walk from the city center to the lower station of the cable car is not especially complex, you'll either need detailed directions, a good map, or a cell...More
