Elevator Gloria

Local name: Elevador da Glória

Lisbon has four public elevators that allow you to get to lookouts or higher places in the city. One of them is the Gloria Elevator. Its route leads from Restauradores Square to the Miradouro de Sao Pedro de Alcantara hill.

The location of Lisbon on seven hills has always been a challenge for public transport. At the end of the 19th century, several elevators were installed in the city, which made it possible to reach the higher points. The Gloria elevator was installed in 1885. Currently, it transports around 3 million people annually. In a few minutes he covers a sloping route about 260 meters long.

In addition to the views from the viewpoint on the hill, the attraction is the ride itself with an old yellow wagon. Its interior with wooden benches has remained unchanged since the turn of the century.
