  • We take the cable car coming back from our tour of the cellars GRAHAM's and it was very nice. Not only that we allowed to connect the top of the Luis bridge without having to climb this Hill, but we had time to admire the Douro, Ribeira district, to hover over the port warehouses. View guaranteed and you will complete your visit by the crossed the bridge Luis at his highest level to reach the Cathedral for example and watch the sunset

  • We bought the one-way ticket, we got this cable car to go to the convent of Pillar, and then cross the foot Bridge Dom Luis on top, with a new vision of the cities. Very cool!!!!!

  • Interesting, I guess, for the lazy or people with reduced mobility. If not, why pay for two hundred meters from the gondola, with queue waiting at the start, while the view on both banks of the Douro since the bridge Dom Luis, from the subway from the train station Bento station Jardim or from the Mirador is just as interesting, if not more. The climb or descent to the wharf by lanes steep, paved and bordered of small houses picturesque roofs and facades is also worth the trip.
