The aerial tram is much like a ski lift. It takes the riders to the top of the hill and back down for 3 eu each way. The view at the top down onto the town and the surrounding hills is amazing. There are hiking...More

The cable car to the top is quick and not too expensive. The area st the top is a great place to explore and not too crowded. The views are amazing! Highly recommend if you are visiting Guimaraes

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
