The designer of the lift is a student, so his design does not have the craftsmanship of the designer, but is more free and easy!
In the center of the old city, there is a Santa Justa elevator that was put into use in 1902. The cast iron frame is full of artistic atmosphere. The original designer was a student of the Eiffel Tower author. After taking the elevator to the top floor, I finally discovered that it turned out that this is not a solitary platform, but can lead to Carmo Square (Largo do Carmo), where the remains of the Carmo Cathedral destroyed by the earthquake still tower.
It is here, in the Cathedral (Igresia da Sè) that the relics of Saint Anthony of Padua are found .. who was actually born in Lisbon. This is also the official starting point of the Portuguese Camino de Santiago. A town in the southeastern tip of Portugal (Villa Real de Santo Antonio) is also dedicated to Santo Antonio, on the border with Spain.
I can say that I had the privilege of living on this street during my time in Lisbon. For me it is one of the most beautiful and photogenic in the entire city. It is an ascending street from which you can see the Lisbon Cathedral (in Portuguese, I know). The famous yellow trams usually pass so it is like a moving postcard, do not miss it!
