YOU ARE HERE: ELEVADOR DE SANTA JUSTA
ELEVADOR DE SANTA JUSTA
The only vertical lift in Lisbon is the work of Raul Mesnier de Ponsard, an engineer originally from France but living in Oporto.

It was inaugurated in 1902 and serves to link downtown Lisbon with the Largo do Carmo by means of a viaduct.
There is some wonderful ironwork, very specific to the era in which the lift was constructed.
The metallic structure has a neo-gothic design, a revivalism almost certainly inspired by the nearby ruins of the Convento do Carmo (Carmo Convent) given that the rest of the structure is largely in tune with European iron architecture.

Classified as a National Monument in 2002. Links the Baixa to the Largo do Carmo. At the lift’s top, passengers can walk out onto a terrace which affords a stunning panoramic view of Baixa St. Jorge Castle and river Tagus.
