Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Bica funicular (Portuguese: Elevador da Bica or Ascensor da Bica) was opened on 28 June, 1892. It climbs the Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo for 245 metres (804 ft) from the Rua S. Paulo. The lower station of this funicular railroad is almost hidden behind a facade on the Rua de S. Paulo with the inscription "Ascensor da Bica". It was constructed by Raoul Mesnier de Ponsard and opened to the public in 1892. In 2002 it was designated a National Monument. (Wikipedia)
