Also known as Elevador do Carmo, this lift was built at the beginning of the last century by Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard, a disciple of Gustave Eiffel, and remains the only neo-Gothic style monument in the Lisbon district of La Baixa. The streets of both La Baixa and Rossio can be seen from this unique viewpoint.
The difference in height between access to the Rua de Santa Justa and the Rua do Carmo is 45 metres, the latter and the Bairro Alto also being accessible via a long, steep climb up a spiral staircase leading to the viewpoint.
Also visible in the City of the Seven Hills are the Tagus river, the Castelo São Jorge and the ruins of the Convento do Carmo, victim of the historic earthquake of 1755, all from a unique perspective.
Forming an integral part of the triptych of Lisbon’s former line of defence, the Belém Tower was finally finished in 1520.
Its architect, Francisco de Arruda, had created a masterpiece of Manueline art with Moorish influences, not far from the no less impressive Monastery of the Hieronymites, and also classed in 1983 by UNESCO as a world heritage site.
This elegant stonework keep, which looks out over both the Tagus estuary and the nearby Atlantic, remains one of Portugal’s symbolic monuments, and a testament to the country’s golden age of expansion and discovery.
See in 2018 to music!
Taking inspiration from the famous Vienna New Year's Concert, this musical event serves to celebrate the arrival of 2018 in the most wonderful way possible by focussing on the music of Strauss. The most beautiful waltzes, polkas and marches from the famous composer will therefore sound out to the absolute delight of music lovers.
Among these choice works, will be the famous Blue Danube and the Radetzky March.
And so that this concert is perfect, it is the Strauss Festival Orchestra and the Strauss Festival Ballet Ensemble who will perform the works at this large-scale musical event.
Expect a concert as festive as it is spectacular!
Happy New Year!
A fireworks show, concerts by various Portuguese artists - everything to make sure you have one of the most festive new year's eves!
The festive atmosphere will be twice as magical with the beautiful setting on the banks of the Tagus, a beauty enhanced by the explosions of light from the fireworks reflected in the water.
End of year sport!
The Corte Inglés São Silvestre de Lisboa race enjoys great success every year. This race which takes place every year on Saint Silvester's day, leads participants to run along one of the major avenues of the Portuguese capital. Several thousand runners therefore get stuck into this sporting adventure that is also open to children. The younger ones can also take part thanks to distances designed for them (300, 500, 700 or 1000 metres).
What a friendly and sporty way to finish the year!
