Lisbon is.. #history
⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ Santa Justa Lift is one of the best loved monument of the city for sure.
The Neo-Gothic inspired lift was designed by a Porto-born French engineer Raul Mesnier de Ponsard (who, as rumors say, was a student of Gustav Eiffel, explaining the structure similarities to Eiffel Tower in Paris). In 1902, the 45 meters (147ft) elevator was, at first, powered by steam and was in fact, a way of transportation witch could connect the upper side to lower side of Lisboa.
The iron ride take us to an amazing view over the city, and if you know all the details of the lift history it became even more special!
Oh! And it can carry 20 people upwards, but only 15 down. 😉
