The elevator itself is old and ugly. But at the top you can make nice shots of Salvador. There were lines of people, but it was organized.

Historic lift, moderised recently is an unusual sight for a city split into lower and upper parts! Included in the Salvador bus trip.

This is something a tourist should do but it is not a bucket list item. It is cheap and is usually not very busy. On both ends there is something to see and do but the ride is uneventful.
