The remodelado tram

on the way to old town Alfama

The Lisbon tramway network is a real attraction and considered among, if not the best in Europe although the construction of Lisbon Metro and the expansion of bus system began the slow decline of the network. The most colorful survivors are the so called "Remodelado trams" representing a desire to combine tradition and modernization but ,in practical terms, to maintain a tram service capable to perform the dificult indulating route through the narrow streets of Alfama district and accomodate well to the steep inclines of the tracks. They may be slow and heavily loading but they are armed with the appropriate acceleration and good breaking to help descend the hills. Using these remodelado trams and especially the most famous No 28 is a very delightful way to reach the Alfama heights and admire the breathtaking view from up there.

    Typically how it winds through the narrow streets of the Alfama. Something not to be missed when there.

    It sounds and looks like an excellent way to get about in this part of the town... as well as being great fun. It would be my choice to use the tram to get to the top of thosde heights for the view.... and then a slow stroll back down again :)))
    A superb picture with great details and colours.
