    Railway station (Viana do Castelo, Portugal)

    If you go from Porto, there are some possibilities:

    1.- By Car
    You can check

    2.- By Train:
    You can check
    From São Bento (Praça Almeida Garret; metro, São Bento, line D/yellow, in the city centre) or from Campanhã (metro, lines A, B, C and E), take the Braga urban linha/line, however, you have to change the train in Nine.

    - Internet: (Guimarães line) (Portuguese Railway Network)

    3.- By Bus
    Sometimes it's a direct journey, sometimes it goes to many places before Viana.
    There are at least two comapnies that link both cities. Here is some info that can help you a bit.

    *Rede Expressos:
    - Bus station: Rua de Alexandre Herculano.
    Close to Praça da Batalha.
    Metro: São Bento (line D).

    - Internet:

    * A.V. Minho
    - Bus station: Praça Régulo Magauanha
    Close to Trindade and Praça da República.
    Metro: Trindade (lines A, B, C, D and E).

    Once in Viana, you will arive at the railway station or interface de transportes; one is just behind the other and we can consider that both of them are in the city centre, at the end of Avenida dos Combatentes da Grande Guerra.

    This elevador/funicular takes you, in about two minutes, to Mount Santa Luzia. There you will find the Basilica (with the same name) and will enjoy fantastic views of the Atlantic ocean, river Lima and Viana do Castelo itself.

    Address: Avenida 25 de Abril (close to the railway station and interface de transportes/bus station).

    Elevador de Santa Luzia

    So as easily access the Santa Luzia's Temple Monument, a funicular (elevador) was built in 1923 that was totaly restoredin June of 2005 by Viana do Castelo's City Hall. It is the longest (650 m) , and steepest funicular in the country and it offers a really enjoyeble journey.
    In April of 2007, two ways ticket had a cost of 3 euros. Don't miss the ride!

    Train from Porto or Valença (often)or Vigo in Spain (twice a day) or by bus from anywhere mentioned on my page.
    See reference to ferries under activities.
    Walking or local buses. There is a funicular up to a religious sort of place above Viana.

    Car is definitely one of the most common transport in the area. To visit the city you can just leave your car on the park located near the river.
