Really nice area to go for a walk. There are some spots to be visited, a church, ruines, huge rocks (one can walk through), nice forest, a bit hilly but with nice maintained pathes. Can either be accessed by car (free parking) or by chairlift.

Reached by cable car (reviewed separately) this church is definitely worth a visit, on its elevated setting on the expansive square that sits atop the plateau. Great views of Guimaraes below, and some nice woodland walks, dotted with giant boulders. One or two cafes and...More

Through the bus company called TUG. It is only to know the number of the bus that travels to the Sanctuary.
