Elevador da Glória

Lisbon Portugal

Gloria is a bright yellow funicular tram which runs from Restauradores to Bairro Alto. It is a fun way to get up to the 15th century district full of bars and restaurants and the most spectacular views from the  Miradoura de Sao Pedro de Alcantra which is only a few yards from where Gloria terminates in Bairro Alto.  You can look out over the River Tagus, the Cathedral, the Arch, the Castle and views to the north.

Unfortunately like much of the city Gloria has not escaped the graffiti artists.

It is expensive for a 3 minute ride – €4 approx. but if you have a Day metro card or the Lisbon card it is free.       

I'd like to hear your opinion
