Lisbon elevators

21Jun

In the ups and downs of the hills of Lisbon, elevators are our best friends and precious allies. The most famous elevator is Santa Justa. Built in cast iron had its opening on July 10, 1902 and aimed to connect Baixa district to Chiado. Bica Elevador (1892) connects the trendy Cais do Sodré to the bohemian Bairro Alto. On Liberdade Avenue, near Restauradores Square, there are two more elevators, one on each side of the Avenue: Glória (1885), which at the top has the beautiful belvedere of São Pedro de Alcântara, and Lavra (1884), which ends at Campo Santana. Last but not least, Castle Elevator (2013) connects Baixa and the area near the Castle. When visiting Lisbon, be sure to get to know them: enjoy the trip to rest and, at the end, contemplate the beauty of this city.
