Monte Sameiro

Interesting
Very busy place of pilgrimage, the mound is crowned with a marriage sanctuary (late 19C early 20C). Inside the church (in front of a room filled with ex-votos), a staircase with 265 steps leads to the lantern of the cupola (at a height of 613 m) from which you have a panoramic view over the Minho. To the northwest you will see the Santa Luzia mountain dominating the Viana do Castelo; to the northeast, the Serra do Gerês; the Serra do Marão to the south east and, lower down, the relics of the historic city of Briteiros.
