    Don't wait in the long line! Go up the pedestrian stairs and go up the last staircase after the lift. It will save you money and a lot of time! Gorgeous views - a must-see in Lisbon!

    A must-see! Expect looong lines, but just go up by foot using the street on the act then see the amazing top floor and/or get the elevator down (small lines 😎)

    The Santa Justa Lift (or Carmo Lift) is another urban lift attraction in Lisbon. Made of cat iron, this connects Baixa and Bairro Alto. You can get amazing views of the Tagus River from here.

    Ignore the queue to go up. Enter from the top ( next to museu do carmo). It's free and you can take the lift down with your day or monthly ticket. Great views.

    Excellent views over the center of Lisbon. Lovely Eiffel influenced style in the elevator itself. Forget the ride down, just walk out the back to the street.

    Built in 1902 by a pupil of Gustave Eiffel, this was one of three elevators to facilitate commercial deliveries in the hilly city. Admire the design and the views it offers of Baixa and Rossio.

    Beautiful viewpoint of the city of 7 hills. Great terrace behind the convent to hang out at as well.

    Santa Justa Lift was designed by Raul Mesnier de Ponsard, an engineer born in Porto, was an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel. Dont take it, rip off. You can access free way to the top by Largo do Carmo

    For all those wondering if waiting in long line and paying for the ticket is worth it- absolutely! Even with many splendid miradouros in the city, this experience beats them all. My best Lisbon moment

    do the math: a single ride up costs €5. a metro day pass costs €6.10 & gets you to and from the attraction. plus you can ride it as many times as you like! don't bother paying €3 for the view point

    Its 5€ for the elevator and includes ticket to go up the viewing point which is normally 1.50€ if you want to save money you can walk around it and just pay the entrance.

    Use it if you want to see the views and stuff up there. Otherwise, just use the streets because the lines can get long!

    outstanding view of the city. you may have the illusion that it is a low height elevator, but it is not!

    Not that special. Actually only worth visiting when having a Lisboa Card, so you don't have to pay the ride. Rather walk up the stairs at Calçada do Carmo to Largo do Carmo.

    Nice view over Lisbon. A bit expensive at 5 euros for one trip though. But still something that has to be done!

    When the sign says it opens at 7, don't be fooled. That just means the staff gets out of bed at seven. Try eight o'clock.

    Typical, touristic, not cheap, but you have to take it and then take the stairs up to the roof, some times you’ll find live music there. Read more

    I've waited 30 minutes in line. Each time the elevator goes up, it takes 20 people. But who has the Viva transportation card, doesn't pay entrance.
  • Ilker O.
    Nothing at all, but in lisbon short list. If you have time nice to see. There are better places for seeing Lisbon , the castle for instance or other view points.

    The long line is deceiving - just wait it out. The lift comes every 5 minutes or less

    The view is breathtaking, the ride is not. Don't waste 20 minutes in line, go to the viewpoint from the cathedral upstairs directly.

    Really nothing special. If you're going for the view, there are much better lookouts within walking distance, for which you won't have to pay €5

    Nice, but a bit overrated. View is good, but you can also walk there and then you see more of the city.

    There's a good view from the top, but this wasn't as exciting as I imagined it to be.

    You can get there rounding some houses instead of paying.

    Too much expensive if you don't have the daily travel ticket (5€). 30-45 min to wait and the ascension lasts something like 30 seconds. Think well about it.
