Great views over the bay. Close to the handicraft market. Watch your valuables as 3 couples from the cruise we were on were robbed.

The way up and down. Cost $.15 centavos Not much really to see at the bottom. Just the market which is for tourists. Consider the incline plane on (Convento) R. do Carmo as another way to get to the bottom.

Smells like pee and you are smashed with people of all smells and intentions for a couple of minutes. But it's the quickest way between the Harbour and the beautiful panorama on top

This large elevator building looks nice from harbour side. For very small fee it gives a lift to downtown and later back to harbour, parking area. Elevator from inside is nothing special. Visit doesn’t take time but should be included in city walking tour.
