Over the centuries, the square has witnessed important events, including festivals, bullfights, and public executions. It has served as a venue for social gatherings, political demonstrations, and cultural celebrations.

Satna Justa Lift

The Santa Justa Lift, or Elevador de Santa Justa, is an iconic landmark in Lisbon that connects the lower streets of Baixa with the higher district of Carmo. Designed by engineer Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard and inaugurated in 1902, this vertical elevator is a remarkable feat of engineering and architectural beauty. The lift is an impressive iron structure adorned with intricate neo-Gothic details, reminiscent of the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris, as it was constructed by the same company.
