Currently under reform but even so it beggars belief that people to ride up what is essentially a lift in an apartment block. Wall down the street (towards the ocean) to the next road and use the escalators in the shopping centre. Then walk around the block and you can enjoy the views for free. A total waste of money/tourist... More

Old cast iron elevator takes you up, (surprisingly quickly) a couple of levels to see the views. Then you can walk up the spiral staircase to see better views.

In many ways this is just as it sounds, an elevator. It is quite impressive that you can go from one street level to another by a lift. the main downside was the wait, it must of been over 20mins before we go into the lift and you do start to wonder if walking would have been better, as steep...

The elevator is currently being refurbished. Climb the stairs to the viewing platform to get great views over the city.

Yet another little Lisbon treat that doesn't involve the hills. The elevator certainly takes you back in time. It us ornate and beautifully crafted. The views across the building tops and up into the hills are breathtaking. I spent ages spotting places that I had already visited!

At the time we were in Lisbon the elevator was being renovated. No bother at all as you could still go up on it. We ended up there walking, so our view was from the top first. I liked going to the top, but would not pay to go up in the elevator anyways.

The best photos you can take from Lisbon, if you dont take the elevator, and take the stairs going up till the restaurant you only pay Eur. 1,50 and you spear Eur 5,00 a person, the elevator is nice and old, but its a very short trip.

This is just another way to look at Lisbon, great view but nothing else. The construction is very beautiful but you not need to pay to see it.
