The most popular amongst tourists

One of the main tourist attractions in Lisbon is, in fact, a public service: its six tram routes, three funiculars, and one vertical lift. 

Funiculars climb and descend the city’s steepest hills and given their age they have been declared national monument since 2002. Ascensor do Lavra is the oldest, inaugurated in 1884. Ascensor da Bica is the youngest, inaugurated in 1892. And this one, Ascensor da Glória is the most popular amongst tourist.
