This is another amazing Portuguese special place. High on the hill overlooking the city and steeped in history. We worth a visit.
The architecture thrills you more on the outside. Inside the church does not look like that big, anyway. But the views from the Atlantic and the storming clouds arriving from there were very impressive.
Lovely church in a fantastic location, well worth a visit, you can spend hours hours there just looking around
As you enter Viano do Castelo, you can notice this astounding monument up the hill. Several European cities have such a church /basilica, this one partially replicates Sacre Coeur. The road to it by car is good and there is free parking, but funicular or stairs can be taken by…
Use the funicular as it's quite a walk. The views from the top are spectacular and the main church has a small chapel which provides for quiet reflection.
