Elevador de Santa Justa

Recommended
This lift was built in 1901 by Raúl Mesnier de Ponsard, a Portuguese engineer of French origin who was influenced by Gustave Eiffel. It leads to the Chiado quarter. You can take a break in the café on the upper platform, 32m above street level, and enjoy the fine view over the Rossio and Baixa.
