While in Braga, you can't skip this experience that, though it is a small trip, it is very interesting to do as there are very few water elevators in Europe well conserved and still working.

A massive cathedral located on top of the hill. Surrounded by few cafes, old buildings and a big garden. Cool water-operated short elevator that skips around 700 steps. Back and forth trip is 2€. Beautiful setting. If you come by car, would recommend driving all...More

To avoid a very steep walk in the heat, we strongly advise taking the Elevador up and walking down from Bom Jesus Excellent value!

Took the funicular to the top to get to Bom Jesus do Monte and the fare was very cheap.. Unfortunately you couldn't see any scenery or views due to the trees obscuring everything. But at the top was fabulous.

The staff was very friendly, they took us up with a group so we shouldn't wait the regular schedule.

This works via a counterbalance system and saves having to walk up and down the steps in hot weather. Very interesting.

We chose the ride up and then walked down, it is a tiring walk down and it’s a good idea to wear comfortable shoes!

We arrived just before the funicular uphill left and it was already full. We ended standing on the open platform *in front of* the cabin which gave us a front row "seat" (standing) during the ride up. It made for a fun time-lapse video. If...More
