It's fee station is east of the hospital and poorly sign posted but don't give up. Only €3 round trip. Nice way to get near the Citania ruins.

Definitely worth experiencing at 3 euros for a return ticket. You get amazing views en route and it saves you the long climb yo the church at the top of the hill.

At 2 Euro one-way and 3 Euro round trip, it is a good value. The funicular ended up being very crowded, but on a Sunday morning at 10:00, we waited less than 15 minutes. While we had purchased the round trip ticket we decided to ride up and walk down. If you have any mobility issues, you will need to take the funicular both ways because the elevation gain is significant and the stairway is on a moderate slope. There is no view to be had from the car so the ride is definitely about function. We found walking down to be enjoyable and it took less than 15 minutes. If you have the time and conditioning, walking uphill is very doable.

Fun to do great view from the top. Restaurant toilets and souviner shops at the top. Trip lasts 7 mins each direction as no air conditioning it could be very hot in summer.

It's a much better option to go and visit Santa Luzia than going by car. You can enjoy beautiful views in a surprinsingly comfortable funicular. And it's also cheap!
