Gloria funicular history
The Gloria funicular opened to the public on October 24, 1885, connecting the Restauradores Square to Bairro Alto (São Pedro de Alcântara Belvedere), through Calçada da Glória.
Originally, its traction system consisted of a rack rail and cable, powered by a water counterweight system. Later it evolved to steam power and, in 1915, the second funicular to be installed in the city of the seven hills, was electrified.
Initially, the funicular cars were divided into two floors with longitudinal benches. Today, they only have one floor, but the longitudinal benches were kept.
In 2002, the Gloria funicular was declared a National Monument.
