Best of Brazil: The Monte Serrat Funicular Railway in Santos, SP

This was one of the more unique attractions we visited while on vacation earlier this year. This near-vertical railway, located in the city of Santos, was designed to connect a particularly isolated neighborhood with the rest of the city. The ride itself is fun, and the views are spectacular.

The angle of the incline can be seen the shape of the cars.

Once at the summit, the scenery is visually stunning.
