"Elevadores Bica" Ascensor da Bica Tip by ptitetoile

Ascensor da Bica, Lisbon: 5 reviews and 13 photos


Lisbon is built on seven hills... so to visit it, you will have to go up and down... The best way to discover the town is by foot but believe me... it is quite exhausting! So to help you to climb a hill, you will find several lifts called "Elevadores'" . The most typical one - or the one that is the most on post cards is the "Bica elevador" . The street is very steep and narrow and it is very picturesque. And the area is really beautiful : lots of houses with hanging clothes, very deep views....

Directions: Bica neighbourhood

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
