Take the Elevator Lacerda to the local market place. My friends and I spent some good time in the market place opposite the elevator. The prices are good and you can negotiate with the vendors. I got some great linen shirts and pants. Variety of fine tee-shirts at a good price. Take some pictures with the ladies in white.

I took the elevator with a friend from Bahia, and then took a boat to a island close by and it was much fun, I have heard the area at the bottom of the elevator and near the pier can be sketchy but not sure

This elevator joins the high and the low part of the old city and it is fun to catch specially if you are short of time, only 50 cents do real and worth to do

It is very crowded and you actually have to pay to get an.... elevator! What a nonsense. I don't know why it is so famous...

A must have for those who enjoy taking breath taking pictures. The view of the harbor in the distance is quite exquisite!

This "invention" is a must. As a tourist because not so often we have these kind of thing. As a bahiano it's absolutely necessary. Cheap, works fine, useful. Perfectly local and a must use

If you want to experience Bahia, Elevator Lacerda is one of the places you need to check out. I love Bahia and definitely one of my favourite place in the world! People are great! Food is amazing! So much Passion and culture. They really know how to enjoy Life.

Just a lift but you have to go see and experience the view at the top. Costs a few pence. Takes a couple of minutes.
