Nazaré Transportation: 12 reviews and 31 photos
Take the Ascensor da Nazaré (or the Elevador as local people call it) up to Sitio. Not only it makes a great ride up, but it is also the best short-cut for Sitio da Nazaré, the village located on the top of the hill.
The Ascensor has been moving people up-and-down for 117 years now. Its first ride was in the year of 1889.
Nowadays the Ascensor is served by two modern wagons and it is a pretty safe transportation, the best to go up (or down) the hill.
I've been told that the train-wagon that goes down assists the other wagon that goes up !! Even though I'm not an "expert engineer" here, I should say that this makes sense to me.
The Ascensor makes a fun ride anyway :-)
» adult: 0.80 euro cents per ride.
» children: 0.35 euro cents per ride.
