Elevador de Santa Justa

Lisbon / Europe

The Elevador de Santa Justa is an iron elevator built in the nineteenth century to connect the Baixa district with the higher situated Bairro Alto district. The Gothic looking elevator is one of the most popular attractions in the center of Lisbon.


For centuries, the many steep hills posed significant challenges to Lisbon's citizens. Several solutions were devised to help people overcome the steep slopes. Initially inclines pulled by animals were used.
