I was disappointed as i was looking forward to seeing the elevator but it was not only covered with scaffolding but material covering the elevator. Could not really see the elevator. There were big queues so did not go up either. Maybe i can see it next time i am in lisbon.

If you buy the 6 euro day pass, you can go up the elevator. It is 5 euros otherwise and quite uneventful. You sit in a wooden box, and itblifts you three stories. They say you get to go to the view tower, but you can get a lot of great views of the city for free. But with the... More

There is a great view from the top of the elevator but it wasnt worth the price and long que and hot elevator. We found a small romantic park a short walk away with almost as good a view of the city but also a niece garden/park area, benches and plenty of room to get the best view at the... More

Walking up the Rua da Augusta from the Praca do Comercio, The Santa Justa Elevator can be seen at the end of the Rua de Santa Justa. From the road leading to the tower we saw there were renovation works to the tower so we couldn’t see pass the scaffolding and plastic sheets. There was already a small queue waiting... More

This elevator is profiled as if its going to be similar to The Shard (England) or equivalent to the Eiffel Tower and its not. It is actually equivalent to going up 5 or 6 floors in a building in an old wood and steel spacious lift and once you disembark you are able to appreciate the view, which in all... More

Been to the top as a part of the walking tour we took around Lisbon. Because of the so much bemoaned scaffolding we wwere actually able to walk directly to the upper platform of the elevator without paying anything, so that was a win situation. Also, you can still take quite lovely pictures from many angles despite the scaffold. It's... More

A wonderful way to discover Lisbon is trought its “miradouros”, meaning great viewpoints most of them embracing the city in a lovely way. In every “miradouro” you will find one or several restaurants where you can also taste the wonderful Lisbon cuisine. You can “swim” throughout Lisbon as most of the “miradouros” overlook the river Tejo that looks more like... More
