The cable car takes you to Penha which overlooks the city of Guimaraes. Breathtaking views from the top and some nice rock boulders and interesting catholic shrines.

We had some difficulty finding the site having arrived at the Railway station. Having said that for 5 euros return the cable car gave magnificent views of the local topography -- beautiful/inspiring

We took the Telerferique up €3 each, one way, the park and area at the top is worth a visit , the church is a bit of a dull blocky building but the walk back to town following the red and yellow markets was fun.

I took this cable car to the top and enjoyed wandering around the gorgeous park full of enormous granite boulders, covered in moss. The views over the valley were splendid.
