Ascensor Concepcion Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Built in 1883, Ascensor Concepcion is the city’s oldest elevator. Once powered by steam, today this electric ride sends travelers up to the Concepcion Cerro, where they are met with charming cobble streets, colorful homes and a handful of cafes, restaurants and bars that serve lunch, dinner and coffee el fresco.
While travelers warn the ancient carriages can feel a little risky, the view from the top (and energy saved by not making the climb on foot) is worth the jarring ride. The elevator makes regular trips, which means cars are rarely crowded and visitors will likely find one departing almost as soon as they arrive.
Ascensor Concepcion is located at El Plan and Paseo Gervasoni in Cerro Concepcion. Admission is about 300 pesos per person and it’s open from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily.
