I will start by acknowleding that, yes, as everyone has pointed out, this is literally just an elevator. However, it is incredibly useful and connects two amazing places... the Mercado Modelo and Pelourinho. It is wonderful being able to see both of those amazing sights together thanks to this elevator that only costs 15 centavos (R$0.15). Also, if you head... More

An important landmark in Salvador, nearby there are many points for beatiful pictures, a great place to meet the Bahia's root, nearby there is a Old market center, many histories.

Nothing really to see here. They charge the locals and anyone else passing through to Mercado Modelo or nearby R$.15 to ride the elevator, or to just pass through for marina views. It's only .15, though, so I suppose no big deal. The best photos are taken outside, and the Salvador sign is out front. Not sure why this is... More

Its an interesting little trip up to Pelourinho, with a nice view on the top. Its nothing out of this world, but you pay 15 cents, so might as well do it. It conects the lower part of town with its modelo market and the upper town with all its historical landmarks. once you get out, people will offer you... More

We went a couple of times to check out the view and to take the elevator down to the market (Mercado Modelo). When we went on a Saturday there was huge line and for whatever strange reason of only two elevators of the many elevators they have there were in service.

Gets you from the upper downtown and historical center to the harbor and marina area in a matter of seconds. Very convenient! The view from the upper platform are the best in Salvador. Watch the sunset on the terrace next to it. A terrific experience!

it's a practical way to get to the old town up or down, hardly costs anything and the wait is not long. It's an elevator. Practical.

It s worth going down to see the lower part of town and is extremely cheap anyway... A round trip will take less than five minutes and can be worth coupling with a quick walk at the bottom. (Not more, the Mercado is worthless)

There are such great views of the bay, Comercio and Mercado Modelo from the top of the Elevador and it's a great way to mix in the everyday life of Salvador. The cost is 15centavos so ride up and down all day if you wish. It also gives you a lot more transport options in Salvador as its links the... More

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.
