The Trams of Lisbon, Portugal.

The Lisbon tramway network serves the municipality of Lisbon. In operation since 1873, it presently comprises five urban lines, and is primarily a tourist attraction. Lisbon possess a delightful tram network though many of the routes have been upgraded to soulless modern trams there are still many tradition trams which bump and screech around the network. It is a true experience of Lisbon to see the city by one of these quaint old trams with their wooden interiors and lurching motion. The main routes are either east or west from Baixa; east goes up hill past Castle of Saint Jorge to the district of Graça while west follows the river Tejo towards Belem. On this post card you see the different trams of the Lisbon tramways.
