This was my third attempt to capture the Bica Funicular in Lisbon. The first two efforts didn’t go to plan, due to lighting issues and the Bica Funicular itself was not operating. But finally, I got it! A photograph of one of the most famous Funiculars in Europe as I have personally envisioned it!
Bica Funicular is also known as Elevador da Bica and it connects the streets of Rua de São Paulo with Calçada do Combro/Rua do Loreto. Though only 245 meters long, if you were to climb this distance on your own – you will soon understand the need for an elevator!
It is not only the Bica Funicular that makes this location so picturesque. The traditional yellow tram perfectly blends into the joyful homes of the Pombaline downtown of Lisbon, which dates back to 18th century. The view is accompanied by the beautiful turquoise water of the Tagus River down the street. It is definitely one of my favorite places in Lisbon!
