The fees charged for the return trip are about 3 Euros which is expensive considering how short the ride is.

We used this Ascensor to get to the top of the hill from the Avenida and then walk down the Moniz square in order to catch the notorious Tran 28. It was a nice walk in a sunny and sleepy Saturday morning back in March...More

After almost 4 weeks of saying "we can walk up to our place", we saw it at the bottom of the hill and found out we could use our rechargeable train/bus tickets. Lovely old wood benches inside. Just stepping back in time, how many people...More
