I took the funicular on the tourist office's advice. It is the fastest way to climb from bank of the Duero (Dock Ribeirato) the upper area of the city in order to visit the Cathedral (in the neighborhood of Batalha). The station is a bit hidden, just in front of the Puente de Luis I, and rises to the Rua Augusto Rosa (there is also the reverse). At the station there are ticket machines, you have to get the Z-2, and the journey costs € 0.95 (2 minutes). It is a modern cabin with panoramic windows and capacity for 20 people. Interestingly, this funicular has existed since 1891, but was recovered after more than a century of inactivity.
