About these ratings

For some sweeping views of Lisbon's rooftops — particularly St. George's Castle, Rossio Square and the Baixa neighborhood — you might want to take the Elevador de Santa Justa. Designed by Raoul Mesnier de Ponsard, the elevator is about a century old and was formerly powered by steam. Connecting downtown to the Barrio Alto neighborhood, visitors say the view at the top is worth the small entrance fee. And although there is a cafe at top, recent travelers say that a table is hard to come by since it's most always swarming with tourists.
