Já esteve em 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"

"We had a wonderful day with Marcio. He is knowledgeable, courteous, patient, very mindful and an excellent driver! We enjoyed every site we visited. Guimarães was our favorite. The old town, the views. Marcio made us feel special always trying to show us more and giving us time to explore on our own. We liked it so much that we booked another tour (Douro Valley, lunch & tasting) the very next day with him again. So glad we did it. The lunch at Casa de Barros was an experience in itself. Beautiful property not too touristy, very tasteful and the typical food was the best... so were the wines and the ports we tasted. Do not hesitate a second to book these tours and ask for Marcio"
