Lisbon – Elevador de Santa Justa

A black and white impression from Lisbon.

The photo shows a technical and architectural landmark of Lisbon, the passenger elevator Elevador de Santa Justa. The striking construction of forged iron has been overcoming the height difference of 45m between the lower city of Baixa and the higher Chiado since 1902.

Today, the Elevador de Santa Justa with its observation deck is one of Lisbon’s most famous tourist attractions, but at the same time it is part of the Portuguese capital’s public transport network.
