  • With very frequent travel, it is the de facto medium for locals and visitors. Maintenance is excellent. Painted the machine step perfectly... and the views! Fast, comfortable, original. Also leads to the entrance to the Museum and walk.

  • One of the most modern elevators, it is also cheap. Had a bad experience because their workers were on strike, so it was not fully working. 
  • get on this elevator is very entertaining, especially to get off top, you have the possibility to see how it works and becomes hypnotic, nice view and gives access to walks through the hills.
