Lisbon Trams and Cable Car

Lisbon Trams

A traditional form of public transport in Lisbon is the tram. Originally introduced in the 19th century, the trams
were imported from the U.S. and called the 'americanos'. These distinctive yellow trams are one of the tourist
icons of modern Lisbon, and their size is well suited to the steep hills and narrow streets of the central city.

Cablecar in Lisbon
 Ascensor da Bica

The Bica Funicular (Portuguese: Elevador da Bicaor Ascensor da Bica) is a funicular, a cable railway, in
Lisbon. It was opened in 1892. It climbs the Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo for 245 meters from the Rua S.
Paulo. The lower station of this funicular railroad is almost hidden behind a facade on Rua de S. Paulo
with the inscription 'Ascensor da Bica'. In 2002 it was designated a National Monument.
