Owner description: This elevator is located inside a gothic tower, which provides quick and easy transport between Lisbon's Baixa and Bairro Alto districts.

This is not worth the €10 to go up and down the elevator, not to mention queuing as well! There are way better views of Lisbon elsewhere for free - would 100% avoid.

I don't understand how it could be a 2-3 hour length of visit, max 20 minutes. I would recommend you walk up to the castelo and get a much better view of Lisbon from there.

If you want a little different experience and have a Lisboa Card, you can ride the elevator to the top of the hill to Chiado for free. Otherwise, plan on spending 5 euros each way for the short ride and views. Be sure to plan ahead. Expect a slow moving queue in the evening and a long walk downhill if your dinner ends after the elevator shuts down for the evening (9 or 10 pm).

Senic view was not better than the castle or under the feet of Cristo Rei. The long history of the elevator may only be the reason to visit it. Frankly speaking, it will not make me want to visit it again.

They charge you 5 euro to take the elevator. Its crowded. And if you go around the block and walk up, you get the same view for free.
This is a rip off
The view is blocked with hences.

Had I known that I could walk the hill nearby to get to the top I would've never spent the 10 euro to use the lift. Although the elevator is of a nice design, it is just a lift.
I would recommend still visiting the top, but just using the street access by foot. The views from the top are amazing with a great panorama over Lisbon city centre.
