Elevador Santa Justa
The 'Santa Justa' lift was inaugurated on the 10th July 1902
Built at the turn of the XIX century, the Santa Justa Elevator served to connect the Baixa to the Carmo area. With an engineering work far ahead of that time, it was the first public lift Lisbon. The Seven Hills demanding it so and from a mean of transport, tailored to the everyday needs of Lisbon people, it became one of the most appreciated structures of the city. The beauty of its architecture, designed by Raoul Mesnier of Ponsard, is undeniable and attracts the visitors to climb to the top. There, 45 meters high, they are presented with one of the most superb views of Lisbon.
The building of neo-Gothic inspiration, made with iron, concrete, wood and glass, became a impressive symbol of romanticism. Withstood the Chiado fire in 1988 and maintained the historical design of the two cabins in wood.
