The Passion for fun.
To overcome one of Lisbon’s steepest slopes, in the historic Bica neighbourhood, in 1892 an ingenious water-powered funicular was built – the descending tram filled a water tank on the roof and the combined weight caused the other to go up. 4 years later, the system evolved to steam and since 1914 is run on electricity. Advertising, cinema and various artists have always been fond of this famous Lisbon attraction, always very cherished by all. Now you can also pay your tribute.
