The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Lisbon's steeply sloping terrain has always been a serious problem for the transport of people and goods between the high and the low-lying areas. During the 19th century, in some areas, the company of transports in Lisbon used trams on rails pulled by animals. On the 28th June 1890 a new system was opened to the public at de street of Duarte Belo, copying the one already in use at Calçada do Lavra and Calçada da Glória. The initial traction system was by rack and cable, with water as the counter-weight and it started using electricity around 1912. The actual carriages where not changed since the thirties.
All the three funiculars in Lisbon, Calçada do Lavra, Glória and Bica were declared to be national monuments in February 2002.
Apartment 242 is located in one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Lisbon, where you will most certainly experience the traditional Portuguese way of life. There are several other apartments at Bairro Alto and Bica.
It is at the border of Bairro Alto inside the way were the funicular Bica passes.
Bairro Alto dates back to the 16th century and is characterised by its small workshops and restaurants. By day, it is a quiet sleepy area (recently pedestrianised); by night the area comes alive and is a popular place to dine and drink away the early hours. In Bica you can find the Bica funicular that connects Bairro Alto with Cais do Sodré (where you can catch the train that can take you to the beautiful beaches around Cascais).
It is close to shops, restaurants, cafés, banks, cash machines, public transport ( inc subway station Baixa/Chiado 50 metres away and electric trams) and 24 hour taxi stands, etc.
A wonderful experience of living right in the heart of the city!
