It’s a bridge, and that’s all it is. Not really special or overwhelmingly beautiful. When it was finished it gots a lot of attention because people thought it wasn’t strong enough for the weight of the traffic. But it’s still standing. With Porto Bridge Climb...More

This is almost not a tourist attraction, it is a lot quieter and it is a small fishing village there are cafes that have out door BBQs to cook the fish on

The River Douro has many scenic bridges, with this being the last one before it reaches the sea. In the right light it is one of the most attractive, and can also be impressive at sunset.

Walked west alongside the river from Vila Nova de Gaia. Read on Google that there were lifts to the top of the bride and pedestrians can walk across. This is out of date. The lifts are no more and the top level of the bridge...More

It is worth looking for the entrance, especially if you climb from the bottom with Avenida Gustavo Eiffel. It is a road bridge with a high-speed route so be careful. The view both ways is amazing. It is worth descending on the other side and...More

This bridge is concrete (Dom Luis is steel) but it still conveys a lacy pattern visible when traveling across it. Built in the 1960's, assume this to be state of the art design. Find this bridge down a bit from the Dom Luis bridge.
