Photographer's Note

The wonderful town of Lisboa is gloriously draped over seven hills.
Displayed here is the Elevador da Glσria, it's one of the three old funiculars in service, letting the public mount the steepest ones. The Glσria connects the Restauradores Square to the S. Pedro de Alcβntara belvedere in the Bairro Alto (literally: high quarter) quarter. It’s 265 metres long and the average incline is 18%. The elevadores are one of the icons of Lisboa and are operated by Carris, the company which operates the busses and trams (electrico’s) in Lisboa.

As shown here the steepness of the hill doesn’t keep people from climbing them themselves.

PCS tech: corrected for perspective & lens (barrel) distortion, saturation, contrast and levels adjusted, USM-ed , added a frame and saved for the web.
