For R$18 a piece, we were able to go up Monte Serrat. From here, there is a great view of the city and port. There is a nice building, as well as a picturesque church. Definitely a fun way to spend an hour.

Ride a cable car up the side of a mountain to an old church at the top. From there, you will have a breath-taking panoramic view of all of Santos. This makes a really nice afternoon 'passeio'.

Went to Monte Serrat and was amazed by the view over the city. The ride on the small train took approximately 3 minutes and coming from the streets below - the mountain is so different. I can only reccomend going there
