When arriving into the city of Penafiel one of the first things you will notice is the “Sanctuário do Sameer” who is located on the highest point of the city. You arrive by a long street plenty of trees, just look around on this street...More

So beautiful, takes your breath away. Stands proud overlooking Penafiel.when lit in the evenings you would think you was in a large European City. Beautiful architecture.

The church sits on top of hill overlooking the valley. It is a modern catholic church set in a lovely park.

The gardens are quite pretty and you do get amazing views. The buildings, walls etc are a bit run down but still very pleasant

Didn't have time to go inside but the walk up to and around this was well worth it. Next visit I will go inside.

The surrounding garden is interesting and the views of the city are very good. But I didn't like the building, it's romantic architecture influenced by successive later works didn't convince me. And I couldn't see inside, because it was closed.

A lovely garden with a steep walk upwards if you want to head to the church and spot the best vistas.
