If you like the tram this is a great opportunity. Once you get to the top, eventually to the top of the monument, you have the best view in the city.

A 10-15 minute trip on the cable car (more expensive Fri-Sun at 11500LBP for foreigners) is a must, and Our Lady of Harissa at the top is an added bonus. The views are spectacular and not to be missed.
