The 10 minute journey each way was worth the view. Our particular gondolas had a very narrow door aperture making entering & exiting slightly difficult (especially carrying a camera bag)

This was the highlight of the day for our small child. It gives nice views and not too expensive. The park at the top is heaps of fun for the entire family.

Just 5 euros for round trip. Views from teleferico and from top of the mountain are great. Looks a bit out of fashion, but travel was smooth and nice. A must in Guimarães.

The cable car takes you to Penha which overlooks the city of Guimaraes. Breathtaking views from the top and some nice rock boulders and interesting catholic shrines.

We had some difficulty finding the site having arrived at the Railway station. Having said that for 5 euros return the cable car gave magnificent views of the local topography -- beautiful/inspiring
