Elevador da Bica, Lisbon, Portugal.
The Bica Funicular in Lisbon forms the connection between the Calcada do Combro/Rua do Loreto and the Rua de S. Paulo. The funicular was opened on 28th June 1892. It climbs the Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo for 245 meters from Rua S. Paulo. The lower station of this funicular is hidden behind a facade on the Rua de S. Paulo with the inscription "Ascensor da Bica". In 2000 it was declared a National Monument.
