More than 12km bridge to link North and South of Lisbon. The tallest one in Europe. Nice to drive on.

This can be considered as a modern piece that can be appreciated along with all the history surrounding Lisbon. You would cross this bridge to get to the southern part of Portugal.

This is an enormous bridge which spans the river. It is that long that you can't see the other side! Interesting to see along with the rest of this part of Lisbon.

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

When you turn in your car inform the rental company of your mishap and they will solve it and charge you for it. If you don't do that you will have trouble in many places in Europe
