nice, pleasant and comfortable way to get up to the lovely park of rocks in Penha. The view over Guimaraes and the surrounding are lovely.

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
