As remarked... it's just an lift/elevator. It costs BRL 0.15 per trip in a closed cabin (no views from the lift). On the other hand, when on the upper level, you can walk to the viewing windows (without actually paying for the ride down) and look over / take pictures of the coastal area of Salvador.

This is one of those great things that once you have used it you will not forget. It is not that it is comfortable spaceous or nice but that it is iconic and unique. If you want to represent Salvador in one picture this is it. The one unique symbol that serves like a Big Ben, Statue of Liberty, leaning... More

I went there expecting a panoramic elevator but it is just a normal elevator to go from one part of the city to another. It costs 0,15 reais, a very cheap price. The view from the top is amazing.

Went on this elevator as many people had reviewed on here, however once at the bottom didn't really see the point as not much to see. Didn't cost much so not a problem!

Really good views of the harbour, the market and the city. Queue can be big but moves quickly. If there's a clear sky, you should get an amazing sunset view. Must visit!

This lift is the most obvious way to go up to the old city from the market and the cruise-ship terminal. It costs a nominal 15 centavos so that everyone can afford to use it. so you have a feeling of mixing with the people of Salvador as well as the tourists. Try to have the right change to hand...

This is one of the famous landmarks of Salvador. It is 142 years old, 236 ft tall connecting the lower and upper city of Salvador. Because of its height, we can see the beautiful harbour and Mercado Modelo ( good shopping ). At the upper city right beside the elevator is the famous Palace Rio Branco and many churches close...

This elevator basically takes you from the ocean level of Salvador's port to the top of some cliffs overlooking the entire harbor. The views alone are worth it. But, they also have an interesting marketplace at the top and, if you're a senior (65+) you ride for free.
