  • It is located in Largo dos Arcos da Ribeira and is free access. There's a vigilante on the lower floor and although we may be the one to call the elevator, we should say something to the clerk, who we intend to climb. My idea is that you'll be there to avoid vandalism. Once on the higher level we have no information to where we headed, there could be more signaling. I chose to go back down, after all the goal was to see the functioning of that and the sights. In relation to the sights, I found nothing more, because the metal structure where the elevator box moves, does not allow large panoramas, nor good photos. There are many other places to enjoy the riverside area. I didn't find it very useful, and I didn't see anyone else using it, either.

  • Good view of this part of the city of Porto. Located in the area of the Ribeira and access can be done, climbing a number of stairs until you reach the top. Recommend.

  • It is a steep downhill from the vicinity of Porto Cathedral to the north side of the Drawo River. It is easy to go to the Kawakita side, but the return is necessary to climb a steep staircase etc. The frame of this elevator is assembled in a sturdy steel. It might be good to use it when it is not energetic to climb the steep slope in the heat wave.
