Travel between Baixa and Carmo Square with Elevador de Santa Justa, an elevator located in a Gothic tower. Built in 1902 to provide transportation between two neighborhoods in the difficult, hilly landscape of Lisbon, the elevator moves up 13 m (43 ft) from the lower streets of Baixa to the Ruo do Carmo and the upper zone of Bairro Alto. On your scenic elevator ride, you can see the Tagus River, Castle of Sao Jorga, and National Theatre D. Maria II, among other sites. Don't forget to stop on the elevator's observation deck and note its Neo-Gothic iron construction. You then can explore the adjacent neighborhoods on foot.

  • A nice place but more then 5 Euro for a ride is way to much
  • The view from the top is excellent and it's not too crowded up there either. The wait for the elevator was long and in hindsight I would have been better off taking the stairs next to the museum in the back and crossed the bridge instead. The elevator itself has a few seats and it's like stepping 100 years back in time, like the rest of the tower.
