The tram is very consistent and we didn't have to wait long for it to take us to the top. Wow, what a view and what a couple of wonderful old buildings awaited us. The church was very special and you can see why folks have celebrations in the station building at the top. But the views of Santos and... More

A guy afternoon we decided we wanted to try the Funicular to the top. Little did we know it was an old Casino up top. The Funicular maybe a little boring for some but you gotta love the views from the top. A small coffee shop awaits those who do this. The Sewer Museum is at the bottom and worth... More

Santos is so dominated by nature and Monte Serrat totally shows it ! The sea, the trees, the city, the mountains you can see them all from the top, after taking the funicular railway. You can also go by foot if you are brave and need some exercise. It will give something to talk about for sure!

Based on another review we read here, we took the funicular up to see the views of Santos. The views are really lovely. The ride is quaint - no frills and not terribly expensive. Once you are there, other than the views and a food/drink area with limited selection, not much to see - but you do get a 360... More

For R$35 you can take the funicular railway to the top of Monte Serrat, it only takes a few minutes and the views are spectacular, of the city and the port. There is a little coffee shop at the top that also sells ice cream.

We hiked all 402 Steep steps up to the top. Fortunately we were lucky and had a nice sunny day for this hike. The hike was nice, not crowded at all, so if you want to avoid many tourists on the tram, choose the steps. On our way up towards the heavens, there were holy shrines, each one depicting the...

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
