Went to Monte Serrat and was amazed by the view over the city. The ride on the small train took approximately 3 minutes and coming from the streets below - the mountain is so different. I can only reccomend going there

Monte Serrat is a phenomenal place to get a great overview of Santos - all the channels which divide the city and on the other side the old town with the harbor in the background of the city.

The place is such located so that you can have a whole panoramic view of the city and cable car service is much consistent and cannot be missed at all if you are in the city.

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.
