Once you walk under the arch of Praça do Comércio, you will encounter a busy shopping street with many traditionally Portuguese stores as well as bigger brand names. However, one of the biggest attractions of this street is actually the Santa Justa Elevator. Inaugurated in 1902, the elevator first served a more practical purpose as it bridged the gap between two neighbourhoods that were essentially separated by elevation differences. Today, it is one of the most popular tourist attractions thanks to the fantastic viewpoint that you can find at the top of the elevator. You can also take this elevator to explore that part of the city, but I recommend taking it up and back down to simply enjoy the view. This is a very famous tourist spot and can therefore be very busy: plan ahead and make sure to come early if you would like to avoid very long (almost two hour) lines.
