Elevador de Santa Justa

Rua de Santa Justa 103. (Open Map)


Raul Mésnier, who was an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel, constructed Lisbon's one and only vertical street lift, the lanky, wrought-iron Elevador de Santa Justa. This neo-Gothic marvel dates back to 1902, when it was steam-powered, and continued until 1907. To fully enjoy its beauty and the breathtaking views of Lisbon from the top, arrive early and beat the crowds.
