Interesting, but not a wider outside of Salvador, while you are touring old town, look at the hill it sits on, fort ruins, old stone walls, great view, nice to see, read the history, combined upper and lower town.

I bumped into it without looking! I just needed a way to get back up to Pelo and there it was...very cheap to ride and the views from the top were great!

Elevadora Lacerda is justthe second after Pelourinho place, who everybody knows. I wanted to tell you that following right down the hill, you will get to a cousin of Elevadora Lacerda. Its another, opened car elevator and you can take great pictures from it. It costs nothing.

You get sucked in to going to it - basically it is an elevator that drops you off several stories down at a lousy former fish market filled with tourist trinkets. time would be better spent elsewhere!

Can't refuse the opportunity to ride in a unique elevator, for just a few cents. Nothing to see on the inside, but a must-visit area

Took the elevator to the local market. Lots of characters on the elevator so keep your purses, cell phones, and valuables under tight security. Lots of poverty in Brazil and the associated crime that comes with it. My friends got robbed

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
