Penha Mountain and Cable Car


Very close to the city, the Penha Mountain is a place of exceptional beauty and worth getting to know. The high dedication to Sra. da Penha has as a place of faith and worship the sanctuary located here and that has taken the name of this land beyond borders. For those who enjoy adventure, the mountain allows the discovery of numerous caves and lookouts from where magnificent panoramas can be seen. A large variety of services – restaurants, bars and cafeterias, as well as many substructures – mini-golf, equestrian centre, race track and camping park – make up what this place has to offer, allowing the practice of various outdoor activities or the simple enjoyment of nature’s company while having a picnic. The mountain may also be accessed by a cable car, whose terminal can be found in the urban zone. Its 1.700 meters course has a duration of 10 minutes and will surely be an unforgettable ride.
