The Elevador de Santa Justa is one of the city’s most famous sights.

Designed by Mesnier du Ponsard, it was originally called the Ascensor Ouro-Carmo.

It connects Rua do Ouro to Largo do Carmo via a neogothic-style structure completely unlike any of the other elevadores in the city.

The lifts themselves, made of wood elegantly decorated with brass, evoke a journey in time as they ascend and descend towards the most exclusive areas of the city.

At the top of the tower is one of the best viewing points in the city, providing a splendid panorama of Baixa, Castelo, the Tagus and also the impressive ruins of the church of the Convento do Carmo.

It’s worth a ride to feel a surge of emotion at the view which extends before your eyes.
