From the top of this elevator you can enjoy a great view on the Baixa, the central part of Lisbon. Built in 1902 by a student of the famous French architect Eiffel (the one who has built the Eiffel Tower in Paris), it was once used to get people to the higher historical quarter Bairro Alto.
Hike a lift on this to lift you up to the ruins of the Convento Carmo and for great views across to the Castelo.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
There are a lot of locations where you can go shopping, but I have to mention two of them: Amoreiras shopping centre and Coelho.
Climbing the Elevador Santa Justa.
Stunning and beautiful views of the ancient city, especially the Baixa and Alfama districts.
Take a ride on Lisbon's most famous elevator, Elovador Santa Justa, located in the center of the city.
please you must climb with a elevator (like The Santa Justa Elevator) its very curious and interesting
This is one thing you cannot miss even if you want :-) cause it is located in the very heart of Lisbon: the Santa Justa elevator.
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)
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.
