Lisbon, Portugal - June 13, 2011: an iconic funicolar tram, Elevador da Gloria, runs between Baixa (Restauradores Square) and Bairro Alto (Miradouro de Sao Pedro de Alcantara), in Lisbon, Portugal. The Gloria Funicular was opened to the public on October 24, 1885. At first it was designed as a water-powered system, then in 1886 it was replaced by a steam-power, and finally in 1915 it was electrified. In 2002 it was designated a National Monument.
