worth going all the way to the belvedere either by car (free parking) or by the cable car. fantastic view even though we did not climb up the church as it was very windy

Really a must visit when in Viana do Castelo. The inside is very special with some amazing detail and style. There is an opportunity to visit the tower for further breathtaking views.

The scenery is breathtaking with a view on the city on the river and on the ocean. The small funicular is nice.

Beautiful view of Viana do Castelo. A must visit when you are visiting Viana. Possible to drive with the car to the top of the hill.

We went up in the funicular which is worth the €3 as its a steep and long climb. Interesting little church but the views are incredible and what you come for. There's a staircase down (next to the funicular) which will give you jellylegs.

The views outside are as magnificent as the interior. So recommended to visit. And take the Funiculaire de Santa Luzia , a nice roundtrip !

Sorry for delay, admission is free. If you like going up to bell tower, each has separate elevator and you have to pay. It was 1 euro each. The one on the right has extra narrow steps to the top, the one on left has... More
