Super useful cable car which will take you for 5 Euros (price of a return ticket) to the beautiful Morro da Penha! It is is so worth it! Not so much because of the view of the city but because of the amazing rocks and...More

The purpose of the cable car is, of course, to get you to the top and back, which it does safely and in an entirely fascinating way. The cars are OK and views are great. But the concrete nastiness of the area at the top...More

The ride back to the city provides an excellent view of Guimaraes and its environs. Although the walk from the city center to the lower station of the cable car is not especially complex, you'll either need detailed directions, a good map, or a cell...More

It's a fun ride to visit Penha Hill and to see fantastic views of Guimaraes city. It's quiet at the top with a chapel. Had a photo taken (€7) which was presented in a glossy pictorial booklet about Guimaraes & DVD of Portugal. It's great...More

At 5 euros for a return ticket. This represents excellent value for money and excellent views for free. The 10 minute or so ride will whisk you to Serra Penha and beyond. Even if you only have a spare 1 hour so - take the...More

Unless you've got calves of steel, take the cable car to the top of the mountain overlooking Guimaraes, where you'll have incredible views of the city. Nice and cheap and only five minutes or so from bottom to top.
