A bonus Yellow
The Elevador de Santa Glória is a tram that departs from Praca dos Restauradores and in a few minutes it takes you up a very steep alley. It has been a service since 1885 and has been powered by electricity since 1915. The journey is only 200 meters but it is always crowded with tourists and locals who want to spare themselves the trouble of climbing on foot. Worth taking a short ride on this funicular up to a beautiful look-out point the Miradouro (viewpoint) de São Pedro de Alcantara, the best known and most visited viewpoint of Bairro Alto from where one has a panoramic view of downtown Lisbon and across to the castle.

Love the photo of the tram. Though the first two are just as stunning especially the pears. Keep warm and you will be wishing for more relaxation after a garden spring clean, enjoy the down time 😊
There are actually 4 photos in the header, I guess you are viewing it on your phone app or in the Reader.
You guessed right!
Love the tram Jude 🙂
Nice isn’t it! Have you been to Lisbon?
No Portugal was part of last year’s proposed European holiday 😀
Oh, well hope you get there next year!
Or whenever we can
True. Who knows.
That looks like a fun journey!
It’s quite short, but steep. I didn’t use this one, but did go on the Elevador de Santa Justa.
And a lady in a yellow shirt as well!
Love the yellow tram and that lady in yellow is a bonus!
Isn’t she just!
How perfect that the lady just happened to be walking, in her wonderful yellow top, by the fabulously yellow tram!
Yes, I was incredibly lucky with the shot.
A real treat! I love Lisbon and it’s great to have such a colourful view of it.
I always go to have a look at this tram even if I don’t ride it. The street is good for a walk too as it has plenty of street art 🙂
A walk? More like a climb! 😂
