The Serra da Penha #mountain , also known as the Monte de Santa Catarina, is only at a few kilometers as the crow flies, thus serving as #Hausberg of #Guimar ães. It can be reached by road or cable car. On the peak plateau is placed the Santuário da Senhora da Penha, a #pilgrimage site, planned in the 1930s by the renowned Portuguese architect José Marques da Silva and opened in 1947, three months after his death. In addition, the mountain offers #breathtaking #views over the old town, the #palace and the #castle .
