It is ok

My suggestion is: go up by Cassis and go down by the elevator. Your Metro ticket work for both. You can view the city from the top

This is probably my favourite lift in all the city! The beauty of it is absolutely mesmerising and the engineering always fascinated me! The view from the top is wonderful but, for me, the "tower" itself, the body of the elevator, is a constant remainder of human ingenuity and aesthetics!

The cost is 5.60 EUR per person to climb 6 or 7 NY stories height??? The view is nothing more special than the view from any other platforms throughout the city. Mysteriously there are always long lines to the elevator: tourists with money to burn :-)) The structure itself in nothing special, though attributed to one of Gustave Eiffel's pupils... More

We went there,paid 5.15€ for the lift and then realized we could have used the bridge,just round the corner (from the restaurant right opposite the church). The view tower is charged extra.

30 min queue and 5€ just for 10 seconds to go up with the elevator and reach a point that is accessible by walk and for free from another way (we discovered this later). And the higher panoramic terrace is not even included (additional 1,5€ to access it). Really doesn't worth it, just take a picture from below and than... More

It's a bit confusing where will Citymapper app send you - the top or bottom of the lift. The highest level is under construction so it's a shame not able to go up there. Random note: we were addicted to Custard Tart in Lisbon!!!! I wish I bought hundreds more before returning back to the UK 😕

We did a couple of Miradorou and in my opinion the lift was the most beautiful one because you get a 360 degree view. FREE activity, don't get fooled by the signs!! Reach the top (accessible from the elevadore bar) and you can directly access the top by taking stairs (less than two floor) for free. If you take the... More

We had to wait almost one hour in queue to get in, but it was worth it. View is fantastic, you can have really nice photos there

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
