location Porto
function funicular, tram station
contributed by Joao_Sousa

The Funicular connects the Douro river bank to the high town at the Batalha quarter, through the Guindais slope. It is the new way that grasps itself to firm stone and ends in a tower facing the river, such as the old wall which leans on a big rock. At both edges of this trajectory there are two stations, each one looking for the adequate relation to each part of the town and its immediate environment areas. Both stations are entirely built of white concrete, the most brilliant colourgrade in the North: in the subterraneous station at the mountain in order to better reflect the light entering through the vertical accesses and skylights; in the station at the valley, to make reference to the clear plans of the slope. The water which runs along the slope and the line of the valley formed by the rails, controlled by little dams that decrease and sustain its speed, falls freely as a cascade in the interior of the station, being then conducted to the river.
