We have already seen the lower city when we were on the Praca Tome de Sousa Square. On the left there is a

Lacerde Elevator

, connecting upper and lower cities. Modelo Market is straightway, and San Marcelo Fort is afar.
It is high time to see the lower city.

. In front of the Modelo Market you meet the market of folk craft's items on the Visconde de Cairu Square.
