If you are looking for something to lift your spirits in Lisbon, this beautiful antique elevator will really give you a boost. Built in the early 20th century, this wrought-iron lift will transport you between the Rua de Santa Justa, in the Baixa, and the Largo do Carmo, in a difference of 30 meters.

Constructed by engineer Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard, the Santa Justa Elevator was built in 1902 in a neo-Gothic style and although the original version was steam, it was replaced by electric power in 1907. The wonderful details of this lift are a delight to see – Polished wood, large brass dials, neo-gothic arches and ornate ironwork.

Riding this historic elevator is a must – not only for it’s beautiful and cultural significance, but also for the thrill of being lifted above the city to enjoy stunning views of central Lisbon.
