When people talk about the Elevador Lacerda, it's not because of its ride, but because of the view from the square where it is located on the upper part of the city. The lift itself is nothing but a lift without a view. It's an important connection point between the two parts of the city, cidade baixa and cidade alta.... More

It is an important place, because it conects the old part of city to the new one. The view is breath taking, but watch out the sellers. They are incredibly annoying and will try to make you buy their souvenirs no matter what. So, don't be afraid to sound impolite because that's the only way they understand that you are... More

Overrated as you are in a normal lift when you get in with no windows so there's no view to enjoy! Only 0.15 reais so very cheap though...

The Elevador Lacerda connects the 'Low City' to the 'High City'. It's a massive post card-like scenario, the view is stunning and it's full of history, from its origins to its location!!! Very worth a visit. On the high city you have the Pelourinho and its historical houses and churches, and in the Low City you have the market with... More

The elevator itself has nothing special, it is just an elevator. However it will take you up and you will be able to see a beautiful view. Be ready for lots of people trying to sell you stuff once you get up there. It is very cheap, only R$ 0.15 to go up and the same price to go down.

It usually crowded has a line to get on. It has nice view of the bay from the top and then you can go down to the local trade market across the street. They even have a street light you can cross with or it a place to catch a bus. I look more impressive it a elevator but the... More

This elevator is imponent and is a photo oportunity. It connects the high city with the low city and will take you from the Pelourinho to the market and port area. The ride is smooth but can be overcrowded in peak time.

Yes, Salvador has an elevator that connects the uptown with downtown! It is really cheap- R$ 0, 15 It is also really easy to figure out, it makes it easy to visit Pelourinho and Mercado Modelo in one instance

Great idea and so cheap 15cents each way, the lift connects the upper and lower parts of the city and only takes a few minutes, a fantastic view from the top and only a short walk to pelourinho from the top
