Was only okay. I thought it would look better in person but not really. We didnt go up the elevator due to the exorbitant price.

It is a must see. The scenery is fantastic from the top and it is free if you have Lisboa Card. I went up with the first group right after the opening and the crowd was managable.

It's definitely worth a look and a photo as this elevator is very odd architecture. Big crowds and you'll probably have to stand in line to ride. Views on top, but there are free places nearby with the same views.

Didn't take the elevator. Went to the top through a different route. I highly recommend going all the way to the terrace for some amazing views.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the

Between 6 am and 8 am. The views are gorgeous this time of the day. And after 9am the lines are very large for remainder of the day. Do it first. Have breakfast close by afterwards!
