This is a place to go only to say that you went on it in Salvador. It's no a panoramic lift has a poor structure. You can see a beautiful sunset from the top. But that's only.
Compared to the rest of the colonial quarter or Pelo, as it is known, this elevator which has four lifts is art deco in style and really stands out. Connecting the Cidade Alta and Cidade Baixa it conveys thousands of people a day and relatively quick if all lifts are working. A bargain at R $0.15 for around 20 seconds... More
The Elevador Lacerda is definitely the best way to connect between the low and the higher parts of the city during day time. Currenly only one of the elevators is working, but there are signs everywhere saying that they are renovating the elevators. In order to transport passengers in a nicer, faster and safer way. Although the signs are there... More
The Elevador Lacerda is a historical lift build to connect the downtown with the rest of the city in 1873. It is located in front of the Bahia de Todos os Santos´s Bay with a GREAT view to the ocean and the downtown. Nice sunsets from there and you can see the Mercado Modelo and Solar do Unhão on the...

This elevador is the quickest and easiest way to get from Cidade Alta to the Comércio district of Cidade Baixa. The beautiful art-deco elevator complex is conveniently located in Praça Municipal on the edge of Salvador's Pelourinho district. It only costs R$.15 or about a dime to take the twenty second plunge to street level. The elevador is a popular... More
Practical architectural feature to go from upper and lower city in Salvador. 30 second ride if that. Elevator fits a lot of people. The only sketchy experience I had while in the city. An emotionally disturbed individual boarded, but he was calm on the way down only to pick up the craziness after disembarking. Whatever. July 2009
The elevator was a welcome option to get from the upper city to the lower city in Salvador, and more than worth the R$.15 for the 200' ride. There is no view from the elevator, and there tends to be a long line all the time, but we never waited more than 15 minutes to get on.
I was on holiday in Pelourinho in November and only 2 lifts were working in the Elevador Lacerda. In the evening, it was closed, so if you have to go from the Cidade Baixa to Cidade Alta, or the opposite, the only advised way is take a taxi. The streets in between are dangerous. Also, for the day of conceição... More
You get some really great views from the top of this place which is also right next to the 'Broken Cross' which is an interesting monument to check out. Also this is where you need to go to catch the busses to other parts of town anyway so each to check out.
It's an elevator, just that! It connects the upper city to the lower city. Not big deal, it goes up and down. You pay 25 cents for each ride. It's worth it for the view!
