If you are visiting Viana don’t leave without going to Santa Luzia. From the basilica you get one of the most impressive panoramic views. Also worth an experience is to have a drink or a meal at the hotel behind the basilica. Enjoy!

Nice interior. The windows are amazing. Very good views of the city below. If staying in town take the tram up to it.

We stopped at the church on our way from the Pousada. It is a beautiful space, we were only able to look around quickly as they were about to have a wedding.

We stayed at the Pousada located just above this church so we walked down to see what it was all about. The interior is cheerful and uplifting and the location with the view of the city and ocean should not be missed. You can take a tram up to it from the city, which is a fun thing to do.

The view is breathtaking. Has a good parking lot. We took a photo with the amicable man taking vintage photos and altough we hesitated inicially today I don't regret it. It's the best souvenir I could get from Viana.

The National Geographic magazine wrote ‘Santa Luzia is blessed with one of the world’s finest panoramas, perhaps bettered only by those of Funchal and Rio de Janeiro, both in Portuguese speaking countries’.....I agree !

The sanctuary itself is beautiful but the view is something else. A quick drive up the mountain is more than worth it.

This sanctuary is beautiful and worth the visit especially for the wonderful views of the city. You can climb one of the towers for a small fee. You can take the elevator from downtown up to the church. If you have a car you can also visit the hotel Pousada de Santa Luzia which has a very nice garden where... More
