Funicular dos Guindais

Ribeira > Batalha

Can’t feel your legs any more? The funicular railway will gently take down the steep cliff from Batalha (on the higher ground of central Porto) to the quayside at Ribeira. It is only a three-minute journey and the view over the Douro and the spectacular metal bridge is well worth it.


The railway was originally built to facilitate the movement of cargo, particularly Port wine. With your feet now rested and your eyes full of the amazing view, you will think that those two euros were well spent.
