The Elevador da Ribeira

The Elevador da Ribeira or Elevador da Lada is a public elevator in Porto, Portugal. It connects the neighbourhood of Ribeira [pt] (at no. 66 of Largo dos Arcos da Ribeira, near the Dom Luís I Bridge)[1] to the middle of the slope of Barredo, by means of a vertical lift and a footbridge.[2]

It was designed by the architect António Moura, and its inauguration on 13 April 1994 was attended by President Mário Soares and other dignitaries.[2]

The lift is open from Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 20:00.[1]
