Took the public bus it's very good value at €1.60. It's free to walk around and look in the church. The water train is very good fun and much easier than walking up the stairs. Very nice lake in the woods where you can hire...More

Come on a sunny day to enjoy the beautiful views and the really unique staircase. The church at the top is only ok, but the many stairs are really special.

This place is magnificent. You have to get there to see this place. Seeing is believing. The site has life size Stations of the Cross that have to be seen to be believed. Everything in this area including the view takes your breath away.

Take time to walk around the village; it's beautiful. We stopped here as part of a full day spent going through the national park with a private tour guide. It was one of the best days we spent in Portugal.
