Lacerda Elevator

Hotels near Lacerda Elevator, Salvador, Brazil .

Lacerda Elevator is one of the most interesting spots in Salvador. Since Salvador was so populous a city for most of its history, city planners tried to figure out ways to help transport people to and from work over the rough landscape. The Lacerda Elevator was devised as a solution for moving workers from the harbor to the city proper. It debuted in 1873 and became electric in 1907. By 1930, the elevator was renovated and expanded. Still working and transporting people over 130 years later, the Lacerda Elevator is a must on any trip to Salvador. Built by Augusto Frederico de Lacerda with steel imported from Europe, the elevator was actually the most important method of transport in those times. Today it is estimated to carry approximately 30,000 passengers per day. It costs 5 reales to ride elevator and the entire trip lasts about 30 seconds.
