  • It is perfect to spend a different day. Huge, pure nature, routes to discover, a perfect views of the city and as not for photos. That Yes... Nothing to wear high heels women... Haha

  • Beautiful place ... The Church and the garden that surrounds it, even with your modern architecture has its charms. The sunset gave a show piece, bringing more light and leftovers for architecture.

  • the Santuário Nossa Senhora do Carmo da Penha, a major pilgrimage site, sits atop the Summit of Penha (reachable by cable car). The terrace surrounding the Church offers fantastic views of Guimarães.

  • Discover the sanctuary of Penha. Walk the paths of the hill then enjoy the view using the teleferic to come back in Guimaraes. Very nice and spiritual experience. Great panoramas at the top of the hill.
  • 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.
  • Take the cable car up to the great views and beautiful park with its unusual assortment of gigantic boulders.
  • Beautiful place. Very quiet
