Of course you can take the tram, but where's the point in that? As a Camino Peregrino (pilgrim) I wanted to walk. Looking back it was awesome, because the area of the Santuario de Santa Luzia is really beautiful. The view is amazing: From far inland out to the ocean. But is it worth the diversion?

I can only confirm that the other review writers say. Astonishing view from Santa Luzia, the temple inside is simple but spectacular and flaunting. Worth too see it.

Going up costs some money, however very little compared with what you get. The best view, covering all Viana, amazing. Also, the inside is really beautiful as well as the outside.

If you are visiting Viana don’t leave without going to Santa Luzia. From the basilica you get one of the most impressive panoramic views. Also worth an experience is to have a drink or a meal at the hotel behind the basilica. Enjoy!

Nice interior. The windows are amazing. Very good views of the city below. If staying in town take the tram up to it.

We stopped at the church on our way from the Pousada. It is a beautiful space, we were only able to look around quickly as they were about to have a wedding.

We stayed at the Pousada located just above this church so we walked down to see what it was all about. The interior is cheerful and uplifting and the location with the view of the city and ocean should not be missed. You can take a tram up to it from the city, which is a fun thing to do.
