Elevador de Santa Justa - Lisbon
Elevador de Santa Justa
Unlike trams and funiculars, Lisbon’s only public vertical lift, built in 1902, serves exclusively as a tourist attraction.
This Eiffel inspired national monument was inaugurated in 1902, the work of engineer Raoul Mesnier de Ponsard. It is beautiful on the outside, where the filigree-like work in cast iron stand out (and each floor is different). Inside there is a beautiful cabin made of wood and brass. Upstairs you will find breathtaking views, great photo viewpoints, a nice café nearby and a few sweetheart couples enjoying the romantic atmosphere. Over a footbridge, there is a direct entrance to the Carmo Convent ruins and Museum.
And there is a practical side to it: you can ride it using your Viva Card for Lisbon public transportation.
