The church itself is simple but attractive, but our real reason for visiting was for the view of the city from the lookout, which is impressive. As with many other reviewers, we took the teleferico up. It's short, but fun. Behind the church are some...More

This modern church, set atop the highest point in the area is worth visiting if for no other reason than the magnificent views of Guimaraes below and the surrounding countryside. We rode the cable car up at 10 am on a weekday. With very few...More

From the outside this church looks very simple and plain,and it is but it's simplicity is also very beautiful. It was built in 1947. It was a contrast from the older churches in the old town.
