The Funicular dos Guindais, or Guindais funicular railway, is a cable railway system in Porto, Portugal.
The original funicular was constructed in 1891 and closed just two years later after a serious accident. However, as part of a larger initiative to improve the transport infrastructure of Porto it was re-modelled and the modern track opened on February 19th, 2004. The funicular runs down a steep cliff from Batalha (on the higher ground of central Porto) to the quayside at Ribeira. Originally constructed to facilitate movement of cargo, particularly Port wine, the funicular is now mainly promoted as a tourist attraction.
