Elevador da Glória 1

The Elevador da Glória is one of the three funiculars in Lisbon. Sung about in the music of one of the most avant-garde Lisbon bands of the 80s, the Elevador da Glória links Baixa to Bairro Alto – more specifically Praça dos Restauradores to Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara. It lets you turn a steep climb into a romantic moment and was opened in 1885 as the second of its kind in the city. Although it was only electrified in 1915, it still retains its original characteristics. The counter-circulating pulley system known as the Subida à Glória, for use by both amateur and professional cyclists, has been recently renovated. But it’s better to enjoy the comfort of the benches and jerks of the ascent to rest a little before seeing the breathtaking view at the miradouro. Put a cross on your map and go for a wander.
