Elevador da Glória

Elevador da Glória
One of the only remaining funicular railway lifts in Lisbon is the Elevador da Glória.
Open since the 24th October 1885, this tram-like lift makes the 265m connection up a steep hill between the Praça dos Restauradores and Bairro Alto. In the Bairro Alto when one gets off the lift one can not miss the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara on the right, from where one can enjoy one of the best views of the city, especially of the Castelo de São Jorge. Also just off the lift you will find the Casa do Vinho do Porto, where one can taste one of the best things produced in Portugal, Port Wine.
