The Elevator, or Funicular dos Guindais was originally inaugurated in 1891 built by engineer Raul Mesnier to connect the area of the river to Batalha. After two years, a serious accident put an end to its activity, despite the engineer’s efforts to redo the project.

With the urban rehabilitation projects of Porto 2001, a new funicular was designed for the same place, being that of the original only exists the building of the engine room.

A century later, in 2004, a more modern funicular adapted to the current uses is inaugurated.
