Ascensor da Glória

Ascensor da Glória

The Glória Funicular (PortugueseAscensor da Glória), sometimes known as the Elevador da Glória (Glória Lift), is a funicular railway line in the civil parish of Santo António, in the municipality of LisbonPortugal. It connects the Pombaline downtown (at the Restauradores Square) with the Bairro Alto (Garden/ Overlook of São Pedro de Alcântara), operated by Carris. Although commonly described as a funicular, technically it does not qualify as the traction is not provided by the cable but by electric motors on the two cars (hence the overhead power collection). The cable merely links the two cars together so that they ascend and descend simultaneously.
