    After climbing by cable car and spend part of penha mountain day we got here. Beautiful, stunning and something wonderful. The your interior is quite simple but it is quite worthwhile.

    Used the teleferica to get here. On arrival we finsihed the rest of the short climb to the terrace in front of the church. This simple terrace set off the plain church to give a sense of calm. The vie...  more »

    Gregorian chant was heard gently adding tranquility. The world seemed in place ... the intimate place but great ... A huge stone a deserved tribute to the Airmen heroes reminds us of the Story. Not to be missed.

  • Amazing views and a great place for a day out. You can visit the summit and the church by either hiking, driving or taking the cable car up. Sunset is the best time to visit the place as the views are beautiful on a clear day. The church is also beautiful but the real prize are the gardens around the church. Make sure you have a couple of hours free to get lost up here.
  • Decent site with very views of the city down below. Recommended to be done at the end of the day when the sun is going down and the color are golden.
  • Nice view.
  • Take the cable car up to the great views and beautiful park with its unusual assortment of gigantic boulders.
  • Beautiful place. Very quiet

Where to stay in Guimaraes

As one of Portugal's biggest tourist cities and home to a wealth of historical buildings and other sites, Guimaraes boasts a wide array of options for accommodations ranging from extensive boutique hotels to basic youth hostels. To place yourself right in the midst of the action, check into a hotel or guesthouse in the town's medieval center, which reflects a multitude of different architectural styles that have earned it a place on the World Heritage List. Note, however, that with this popularity comes a higher pricetag. To keep costs down, try staying in the residential areas south of the center, which still provide quick access by foot or public transportation to the main sights.
