Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo, Lisboa 1200-054, Portugal


Very popular, especially during the summer, Rua de Bica descends dramatically down the hill all the way from Bairro Alto to the river frontage. Bica is the name of the neighbourhood it passes through, and this really is an amazing place to visit. Most visitors take at least one journey on the world-famous funicular, which reduces a long slog to a scenic ride through the vibrant Bica neighbourhood. Also called the Elevador da Bica, this reliable transport system has connected the upper and lower districts of Lisbon since 1892. The historical funicular operation has itself been a national monument since 2002. Bica’s charming homes and commercial buildings seem to compete for every available square centimetre of space. With numerous bars and restaurants throughout the area, you can get a real feel for the magnetic character of Bica and its friendly, close-knit population. Although Bica is a self-contained community just like Alfama and Mouraria, visitors are enthusiastically welcomed.
