Is a kind of glazed room (cable car) with capacity for about 20 people. The descent is made slowly but is very steep, so you can't see the front of the floor, what scares even. The kids love it! More soft is if the ascent.show original
O elevador fica bem ao lado da Ponte Luís! vale sua utilização caso vá para a parte alta da cidade!!The elevator is right next to the bridge Luis! worth your use case go to Uptown!show original
It's a short ride up a steep hill, but totally worth the nominal fee. Once on top, you can walk back across the bridge on the upper level.

It's a really short trip. Some people can get a decent view as the cabin goes up or down, but since the funicular is rather overcrowded, it's hard to be sure you can get a place with a view. After a day of walking along both sides of the river, tasting some wine, your legs should be very tired and you just dont want to climb up. If that's the case, take this one. Otherwise keep on climbing. It's rather expensive for such a short trip. 2 € to save your legs ;)

Penso que se for fazer a viagem com um bilhete isolado não vale a pena, aconselho mais a descer as escadas. No entanto, se tiver o cartão andante e quiser aproveitar o tempo restante da viagem, então vale a pena, pois deparamos com uma vista muito bonita no percurso.
