    Elevador de Santa Justa

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This lift brings you from the Baixa which is at sea-level to the much higher Bairro Alto. Unfortunatly the connecting bridge was closed because of construction work at the other end, so we could only go up and down again. This was still worth while though, because we had a great view over the city. For pictures of this view look at the 'View from the top' travalogue which you can reach by clicking this link.

    The Cafe

    On the top platform there is a café with a narrow spiral staircase for access. A great spot to over look the roof tops of the Baxio district and further afield, albeit a windy one as well.

    Level One

    At the first level you will alight to take the walkway which links the tower and street below to the Largo do Carmo. At this point you are approximately 32 metres (105 ft) above the ground.

    nice view from the top perhaps?

    this lift was built by Raul Mesnier in 1902, not by Eiffel!

    I did not go up because I did not like the metal thing (did not want to risk of spending several hours stucked in the lift ;o)

    the Santa Justa Elevator is a structure reminiscent of the Eiffel tower in Paris that enables to climb from the Baixa to the Bairro Alto...Quite impressive!

    Hike a lift on this to lift you up to the ruins of the Convento Carmo and for great views across to the Castelo.

    Elevador da Gloria

    This is a neat funicular with a pleasantly sluggish ride up the hill from the Avenida da Liberdade (Restauradores) for a 45-meter difference in elevation at a grade of 16% to Bairro Alto.

    View of Baixa and the Tagus from Santa Justa

    One sector of the grand panoramic view from the top of the elevador. I was temporarily trapped in the corner because of the number of people at the top that particular day.

    Elevator

    Even if you choose not to photo this building, you must at least go up to the top top. If you invested in a Metro pass then you get up for free.
