Portugal is a country replete with holy sanctuaries built on top of mountains and hills. Today, I´m bringing you to one on a mountain top in Monte da Penha( Rock Mountain) called Santúario da Nossa Senhora do Carmo (Our Lady of Mount Carmel) or simply called us Santúario do Penha.
To get to the top, we rode a cable car which was so enjoyable by the way (unless you´re claustrophobic and afraid of heights) because you get to see a bird´s eye view of the city skyline as you go up. I think there´s a small road which leads you to the top if you want to drive but it´s quite a steep climb. Have it whatever you like! ;)
Here´s what I wore on that

And if you´re wondering where the mountain and sanctuary got their name, it´s this:
On the left side of the sanctuary is this natural park filled with boulders everywhere. Amazing! I even had a photo taken in between these gargantuan rocks. Look how tiny I look compared to these two! :)
If you plan on visiting Guimaraes, Portugal, don´t forget to visit this place. It´s so serene and one of best places to contemplate life and appreciate nature. Hope you´ve enjoyed reading my post for today.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone! :)
