The ride back to the city provides an excellent view of Guimaraes and its environs. Although the walk from the city center to the lower station of the cable car is not especially complex, you'll either need detailed directions, a good map, or a cell...More

Unless you've got calves of steel, take the cable car to the top of the mountain overlooking Guimaraes, where you'll have incredible views of the city. Nice and cheap and only five minutes or so from bottom to top.

What a lovely attraction. Ideal for couples. The price is cheap for what you get. At the end you can get a printed version of your trip in the attraction.

Quick and easy way to get toward top of the mountain. It's very hot inside the capsule and it would be better if there was a window from which to take photos. We walked all the way back down to the city, but had a...More
