That's right: 7.6 miles long. I had no idea when, from a fair distance away, I first spotted the pretty bridge spanning the River Tejo. The bridge, like the river, is a monumental attraction in Lisbon. It was built and opened for the 1998 Lisbon...More

Yes it is a Bridge but wow is it impressive, stretching pretty much further than the eye can see across the river, definitely worth a photostop

Longest bridge in Europe. Beautiful to see it from different touristic attraction such as Cristo Rei and from the Telecabine that takes you to the Oceanarium. No line too.
