Saudade. Lisbon, Portugal-1.jpg
Lisbon has three working funiculars which allow its citizens and visitors to move to and from its hilly districts more easily. The Bica funicular opened on 28 June, 1892 and is the only stepped street funicular in the city. From the street, the funicular is concealed by a building but this is clearly lettered 'Ascensor da Bica'. Originally water-powered, steam-power was introduced in 1896, followed by electricity from 1914.
