It's an easy way to get from the top of the old town to the bottom near the market/warf, nice view. It's not much of a tourist attraction I say but very convenient. Be aware of pickpockets.

This elevator takes you for downtown to upper town.
It's a nice view .
Nothing much special about - helps you to go to Mercado Modelo (market selling popular crafts: brazilian stones, embroideries and other).
There you also can eat tipical food from Bahia (very spicy)

and it's not really that impressive and feels sort of dangerous, but you need to get on it to get to pelourinho. no big deal.

I don't see this as an attraction, but more as a torture. Start by getting in line in the hot and humid corridor, to then get in a packed elevator smelling sweat. What's the point of that ? by the way the tourist market down is aweful as well, just stay up top, and if you want to travel use the buses going from praca da Se.
