We began from Penha. We were recommended to do it this way by our hotel owner, and I feel this is the better way to experience it. The prices are quite reasonable and the views are good. We had a snack in Gimaraes and returned up the mountain in the evening after a pleasant day in the town. We then... 更多
We used the teleferico on a cloudy day in October. We visited the church on the top of the mountain and ate lunch at the restaurant near it. It started to thunder and lightning during lunch. When we went back to the teleferico to go down, it was closed because of the weather. The lady there called us a cab.... 更多
Very quick and efficient way to get up and down the hill with some great views. The gondolas are small but feel very safe and secure. When we were there they were operating until 745 in the evening. Pehna itself is well worth a visit particularly the large rocks and boulders connected by a myriad of footpaths.
Cable car is easy to get to, and the park at the top has great views, and provides a good place to stroll, have lunch and change the routine from touring another Old Town Center City.
Getting to the Teleferico is an easy walk from the Old Town area. We arrived a few minutes before the 10:00 opening and were the only ones in line when they promptly opened on time. The cable car door opening is quite narrow and if you are a person of girth you may have somewhat of a problem. And, it... 更多
Whenever I bring a group to this area I take them up to stunning Penha by this cable car. The view is lovely, the cars are stable and comfortable and everybody enjoys the trip.
After the historical center, the cable car is another must-visit during your stay in Guimarães. A round trip is 5 euro (bring cash) and the trip takes tops 10 minutes one-way. The park at the top is a good mix of historical remains, green areas and large areas. Needless to say, the view over the city is great! Also, on... 更多
OK there is plenty of parking at the Base of the cable car it is also easily accessible from the town centre maybe a 15 mins walk. Just follow the roads which lead straight down from the magistrates courts and they will take you down there .We walked from the centre took a few back roads and got there it... 更多
Have just returned from taking the Telefonica to the top of the mountain. The cable car ride is lovely, you get a great view on the way up looking back at Guimares. The view from the top is great as well and it is a nice place to wander around. There is a nice coffee shop for espresso and pastille... 更多
