Trams in Lisbon are not only one of the most useful means of transport to get around the city, but also one of the most popular tourist attractions. Portugal's capital currently has five different routes and 58 trams, 40 of which are vintage.
On August 30, 1901, Lisbon's first electric tram went into service. In less than a year, all the roads in the city were converted to electric traction. Until 1959, the line network continued to develop, and in that year it reached its peak.
DISCOVERING THE CITY
Yellow is part of the brand image of trams. What is the most famous tram in Lisbon? Number 28. The number 28 tram in Lisbon connects Martim Moniz to Campo Ourique and passes through the popular tourist districts of Graça, Alfama, Baixa and Estrela. For visitors, this is the classic Lisbon ride, aboard a quaint yellow tram as it rattles and screeches through the city's narrow streets.
Today, Lisbon's traditional trams are integrated into a multitude of art and home decor pieces that remind us of the whole history of the city: paintings and murals, mugs, accessories for the kitchen.
