Embark on a very pleasant cable car trip that will take you from downtown Guimarães to the top of the Penha mountain. Here, you will find the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Penha, a well-known pilgrimage site. The chapel, built in 1652, served as a Convent of the Imaculada Conceição as early as 1727. While visiting the Sanctuary, be dazzled by the stunning set of tiles and gorgeous pulpit.
The beautiful Penha Sanctuary, a symbol of faith for the people as well as the city's beacon, is a monument of unique architectural and religious features.
When up there, discover and explore several caves and enjoy the magnificent sights that the natural viewpoints give you.
The Penha mountain offers a wide range of activities: a mountain campsite, a mini golf course, an outdoor exercise area, an equestrian center, a picnic area, pedestrian tracks, restaurants, bars and coffee shops.
