My girlfriend and I loved this elevator. We stumbled upon it while walking and decided to check it out. The queue took about 20 minutes. Approximately 15 people can fit in the elevator car at one time and there are 2 of them. We paid...More

The Santa Justa elevator is OK from a tourist point of view, that is to use it as a vantage point to see Lisbon. But you don't have to pay or wait in looong queues to get on it. When you're in Baixa, look for...More

I visited nov 10th. Girl working at stairs going to very top was rude to everyone. Not explaining that it was closed while raining. She was yelling, rolling her eyes. Many visitors were complaining. Hope management sees this.

Yes, it is beautiful, old structure, and when you get to the top you will see the view of Lisbon. However, the line was unpredictably long; it is not obvious that there is another line once you get into the building. It took over two...More

You will find better views in other points. This is not the highest one. Additionally you do not get a 360 view as it is close to a hill. The staff does not inform the tourist properly. They leave you waiting for hours till you...More

I heard in summer has long line, but once your on top you can enjoy great view to city and sea. If you have Lisbon pass do not need extra ticket in order to take the lift.

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
