Ascensor da Nazaré

An elevator that connects the lowest part of Nazaré to the Sítio place, in a total of 318 metres. It was inaugurated in 1889. In 1963, after a serious accident, it stopped working for several years and started functioning again in 1968. Already in the 21st century, the wagons were renewed for the commodity and safety of the over one million people who use the elevator every year.
