Santa Justa elevator is located in the city center, and show the shortest route from the town squares Rossio and Chiado to Bairro Alto. The high is 45 m, at the top there is a lookout point with a spectacular view. Elevator is connected by a bridge to the old part of the city, where there are many restaurants with... More

Its a nice elevator ride but there is a lot of construction going on. The views of the city is well worth the ride

Well worth a visit. We used our yellow bus ticket so entrance was free. You go so far in elevator- oldest ever still in use - then climb a spiral staircase to the roof. Extra cost to do this if you dont have open top bus ticket. We went up at night and views were stunning.

at the entrance of the elevator it was mentioned it would cost € 5 to go into but to start the elevator you could use your metro card. For the last part of the trip to the point of the best view you needed to pay. But from that point you could already see a substantial part of "downtown" Lisbon

Amazing view of the main square and castle from the top viewpoint platform, shame the Elevator exterior was under refurbishment so couldn't admire the structure itself.

For less than 10 euro you can ride up in the old wooden elevator. The lower viewing platform is accessible from a different road free of charge, but to reach the very top you need to pay. There is a tight spiral staircase which leads you up but it is worth the climb. At the top is a 360degree view... More

Took this elevator on my last visit to Lisbon. As I am disabled I was able to go to the front of the long queue. I though may be this was my lucky day - I was wrong. The charge for the return trip was 5 euros. Unfortunately, at the time of my visit, there was renovation work being carried... More

Nice view but very expensive to go up, almost 4 euros! and I had to pay again to go to the top! Apart from the price, it's great to take pictures.

The fine old fashioned lift takes you near to the top and then you take the spiral staircase to the upper platform. The views from the top are totally amazing from which you get a 360 degree view of the city and pick out all the landmarks. Yes, it may be covered in scaffolding but if you go into the... More

The elevator was an interesting historical artifact to visit for a reasonable price. Pay the extra Euro to go up the stairs to the roof for a nice view of downtown Lisbon.
