At the top of the mountain in GuimarãesAt the top of the mountain (around 600 meters high), which can be reached by car, cable car, bus, bike or why not walking; you will find the Shrine of Our Lady of Penha which was inaugurated in 1947. What is also to be appreciated here is the view; down there you can see Guimarães with the castle and Paço dos Duques standing out.
In the surrounding areas, there are paths that take you through the middle of the big rocks. Venture out in the search for caves.
Besides the Shrine, there is a mini-golf course, a campsite and other infrastructures. There is also a picnic area, a great choice for warm days in the Summer.
