Inaugurated in 1873, Lacerda Elevator is one of the most famous postcards of Salvador. This impressive monument, with 72 meters in height, was built to improve the connection between the Upper City and the Lower City, which was formerly made through hills and horse cars. Two of its four cabins pass inside a rock. In 2002, the elevator was renovated to offer more comfort and modernity to visitors. Now, much more beautiful, the elevator has granite floors and walls and an exquisite lighting system, which add a special touch to Bahia’s capital.
