Owner description: Funicular railway that leadss to the São Pedro de Alcântara Miradouro overlook above Lisbon.
Reviewed August 17, 2012

It takes you from Restauradores (one of the main Lisbon squares) to São Pedro de Alcântara belvedere. No matter the hour of the day you choose to go there, you will love the scene- the river on the right, the Cathedral and the Castle a little bit over the left, palm trees (surprisingly there are lots in Lisbon) spread by the city, and nearby São Roque Church, with its lapis-lazulli decorated columns and a very quiet cafeteria for a well deserved rest

It as old as almost 127 years ( october of 1885). Another creation of Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard, it covers 265 meters, taking passengers from Praça dos Restauradores to Bairro Alto, two mains touristic places to see in Lisbon. Inside, we can feel the atmosphere of old days, and also contact with some very typical Lisbon inhabitants...it can be used till quite late, allowing to take a look or more to Bairro Alto by night. It is surely a trip to do...

This is €3.50 for a very short ride if you dont have the travelcard. Travelcard is really worthwhile and includes all 3 funiculars and the elevator de sa juste.

Just remember to keep all body parts inside when tram is moving. It's thrilling when it's going fast around corners, however scary. Can be a little hot and sticky during summer.

The construction is very special. Go to the top in teh antique lift and enjoy the breathtaking 360 views over the city and the river! You can look down to Rossio square an the streets of Baixa.
