Elevadors & Funiculars

Lisbon's elevadors or ascensores (funiculars) are a fun and useful way for getting to the top of the city's very steep hills and take the visitor up to some excellent viewpoints.

Originally water-powered and built in the 19th century, three of the elevadors are bright yellow cabs operated by Carris. Hours are 7am-9pm Monday to Saturday and 9am-9pm on Sunday.

The Elevador da Bica runs through the Santa Catarina in the Barrio Alto. The route of the Elevador da Gloria goes from Praca dos Restauradores to Sao Pedro de Alcantara and the Elevador do Lavra (the first street funicular in the world built in 1884) which runs from Largo da Anunciada.

The Elevador de Santa Justa (aka the Carmo Lift) is an 45m-tall, neogothic-style iron tower in the Baixa area which rises to a cafe terrace and superb views over the area near the ruin and museum of Convento do Carmo in the Chiado district. The elevador was designed by Raul Mesnier de Ponsard, an engineer from Porto, who was an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel. The elevador was originally steam-powered when it opened in 1902 but was converted to run on electricity in 1907. There are two wooden, elevator booths which can carry 24 people.
