Ascend up to the Upper Town.

In Lisbon, make sure you don't miss Santa Justa street. Discover its vertical lift designed in 1902 by the engineer Raoul Mesnier of Ponsard. At a height of 45 meters, it allows you to travel from the lower town district of Baixa Pombalina to the upper town district of Bairro Alto, in just a few seconds.
Take the time to admire its wrought iron design, reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower; unsurprising, given that Raoul Mesnier of Ponsard was a student of Gustave Eiffel. Once inside the two cabins, with a capacity of 24 passengers, you can ascend to the top. Once you get there, you'll find a perfectly-positioned café. Cup in hand, you will discover a beautiful view of the city and its monuments, including the castle of Saint George and the square of Don Pedro VI.
