“Icon of the city”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

It´s nice just as a curiosity, since it a famous post card. But it is not panoramic.

“An old elevator, be aware of pick pockets.”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

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.

“Different kind of transportation”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

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)

“it's just an elevator”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

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.
