Has estado alguna vez en Bom Jesus do Monte?

To reach the Bom Jesus Sanctuary, you can go by foot, car or even take the vertical tram, an impressive piece of 19th century engineering. This was the first of its kind to be installed in Portugal in 1882 and continues to use its water-powered system to power up the 300-metre slope in just 3 minutes.

The church was built later (1784) by Carlos Amarante who gave it an Italian inspired neo-classical design, which integrates harmoniously the landscape of northern Portugal.

The stairway leading to the top contains 17 landings adorned with symbolic fountains, allegoric statues and other Baroque style decoration along themes such as the Stations of the Cross, the Five Senses, the Virtues, Moses receiving the Commandments and, at the top, the eight biblical figures that contributed to the Condemnation of Jesus. Any visit must take in the view from the bottom of the Stairway. Looking upwards there are the ornate granite fountains on the various landings and the white, chalice-shaped outline on which the church itself "sits".

"We traveled with Andre, to Braga and Guimaraes on a small group day trip. No one in our party of 4 could find fault with the trip, the lunch provided was excellent. Andre’s knowledge and people skills were superb, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this operator/trip to anyone wishing to explore beyond Porto"

"The small group tour was a great way to see Braga and Guimaraes in a single day, and provided a nice overview of the highlights of both places. Our guide, Nuno, was extremely personable and knowledgeable about the sites we were visiting, and was good about keeping us informed of the itinerary throughout the day. The highlight for me was the amazing view from the cathedral in Braga, with seeing the old city of Guimaraes as a close second. Lunch was good and quite filling (We were given a choice of meat or fish--I had the seabass) and the vinho verde was nice to try. I really enjoyed the small group format, as having only 6 people on the tour allowed us to ask lots of questions and get to know our fellow travelers. Definitely recommend."

"As a group of 4 wanting to see as much of Portugal as we could, we decided to book a day trip out of Porto. We were incredibly pleased with this private group tour option. Our guide, Hélio, was very engaging, knowledgeable and adaptive. We loved that we were able to get picked up (and dropped back off) right from our AirBNB. We stopped for coffee, which we all desperately needed (thank you, vacation!) Our guide was a great driver and made us feel very safe. Hélio was a wealth of information and always made sure we understood. We learned so much along the way. He gave us options to slow down if needed, and when faced with the usual lunch spot being closed, he was quick to find an even better option that we all enjoyed; The black pork and green wine were so tasty! Overall, we were more than satisfied with our day tour and wished we had more time to do another before we left."
