This funicular was opened on February 19th 2004, to carry passengers up and down the steep cliff face (1: 3 gradiant!) between Batalha (top station) ( Handy for Sao Bento station, Rua De Santa Catarina etc) and Ribeira (bottom station) Near to the bottom level of Ponte Dom Luis

It is used mainly by tourists, but locals and commuters from Ribeira and Vila Nova de Gaia, use it to avoid climbing the steep hill to Sao Bento metro station.

I enjoyed the short journey up from Ribeiro - some good views over the river and of the bridge from a different angle
