Compared to the rest of the colonial quarter or Pelo, as it is known, this elevator which has four lifts is art deco in style and really stands out. Connecting the Cidade Alta and Cidade Baixa it conveys thousands of people a day and relatively quick if all lifts are working.
A bargain at R $0.15 for around 20 seconds is a cheap thrill ride and one of the best ways to get up/down the city’s sections. Salvador is hilly and this saves a taxi ride or some legwork - not ideal to use the elevator at night.
Fantastic views to Todos os Santos Bay can be seen from behind the elevator or at the nearby plaza in Cidade Alta. As with most practical ways to get round the city it can be crowded with a variety of people.
