Interesting to see, but its an elevator

If you are in Pelourhino, then definitely use it to visit the lower part of the city. not worth trekking across the city to see.

The view was okay from the top but when inside the elevator you don't see anything. I found the views from street level of all the buildings more inspiring. It's ridiculously cheap so it's worth a look but definitely not anything too special.

M603 / Part of World Cruise - Queen Mary 2. We docked in Salvador early in the morning, when we looked out of our stateroom, it looked like we were in the middle of down town. We left to dock and walked half a Km to the markets, the taxi drivers were somewhat annoying, not taking "No Thankyou" literally as... More

Quite nice building but inside it's basically a standard elevator. Essentially it is a quickish way to get from Cidade Alta to Cidade Baixa.

You would assume to have a great sight but it is definitely a tool since using this elevator means not been forced to climb up the hill (what can be very unpleasant in summer). And it is cheap (0,15 Real, ~ 0,05€) There are no long waiting times. Just try it! You do NOT have a view to the outside... More

Worth the few cents for the ride to travel down to the Market and explore the port area and the new parts of the city. Good views from the upper viewing areas around the elevator shaft.

Handy as a method of transport between the upper and lower part of the city. Fairly nice Art Deco construction but Salvador has many other buildings etc that surpass this. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it ride in it but was handy for us to use to get to the lower city when staying in Pelourinho.
