I have being here several times past years. To enter Monte Serrat you can go by cable train, i think the price to go by this train is a little bit high but it is also very special. On the top you arrive at the former Casino. A beautiful old style building where inside the history of Monte Serrat and the Casino is being showed by old photo's. Nowadays gambling ... and so a casino is not legal, the building is now used for tourist visits and you can arrange a (wedding) party in the same building.
By stairs inside the building you can climb on top of the casino to see Santos like a birds view. If you go around 17:00 and stay some hours you can also see Santos by night in winter time.
On this same Monte Serrat you can find a little chapel which is also worth a visit. Just besides that you can take a look over the wall and see the beach and bay site of Santos and.... the Atlantic Ocean. Impressive view again.
Once a year there is also a very nice event on this Monte Serrat called "Descida das escadas de Santos" A downhill (down stairs is maybe a better name" from the top of Monte Serrat by the stairs into downtown :)
It is an impressive event.
A walk down the stairs while this event is running is something you will never forget, every few hundred meters you can find a place for local food and drinks. When you are almost downhill there is a little bar with BBQ (Churrasco) , just try it.. it is great! You can feel Brazil here.
Here a link to a video from this event and Monte Serrat:
