Don't miss this cable car ride to the top of the hill for a great view of the city. The hill top is a great park-like area for hiking and picnicking with a contemporary church. Well worth the ride!

Once you've found it (signposting is confusing and the walk from town is up a hill), the cable car ride up to Penha recreation area is fun, and good value at around four Euros return. At the top, there are interesting granite rock formations, trees, monuments, a church, a camping area, hotel and several restaurants. It's a nice place to spend an afternoon. Just make sure to get the cablecar down before it closes at 7pm (later in high summer).

Great way to see the sights of Guimarães. Goes up to Penha and back. Safe and easy way to go. Some booths allow you to take a bike. That way its easier to go up the hill and then: downhill!

As we arrived late in the day we did not have long at the top but we all enjoyed the cable ride - fabulous views of the town and surrounding countryside.

This Teleferico leads you on the top of a mountain where you have a very nice view of the city and it's surrounds.
You can make nice walks between huge stones like in a natural mace.
Price : 4,30€ return
