History of Bica Funicular
The funicular, product Lifts Mechanical Company of New Lisbon, was inaugurated on June 28, 1892, establishing the link between S. Paul Street and Largo do Calhariz. Since that time, it became a real ex-libris of the city, attracting thousands of tourists, apart from the Lisbon inhabitants that use it everyday.
It is classified as a National Monument since February 2002 and it was the first mean of transport created in Lisbon to climb the steepest slopes of the city.
