The Elevador de Santa Justa in Lisbon, Portugal, carries passengers from the Baixa district below to the Largo do Carmo above. (A photo of the elevator can be found in our earlier post Elevador de Santa Justa — Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter E.) The photo below was taken just before sunset from the viewing platform on top of the elevator. Looking down on the geometric shapes of the red terracotta tiled rooftops, you can see the hats and caps of previous tourists who leaned too far over the railing without securing their headgear in the breeze.

The Elevador de Santa Justa in Lisbon, Portugal, carries passengers (mostly tourists) from the Baixa district below to the Largo do Carmo and the Igreja do Carmo church above. Not visible from this angle is the walkway (in the back) leading to the church, but an arch of the church is visible on the right side across from the elevator. (The church was severely damaged in the 1755 earthquake and the stone roof of the main nave is gone, leaving only the pointed arches between the pillars.) The viewing platform on top of the elevator gives excellent views of the Baixa district and the side of the church.
