Regardless of which came first. this bridge is beautiful. You do not have to drive across it to enjoy it. Just enjoy the view of it from many angles in Lisbon.

We wanted to experience crossing this bridge by motorcycle just for fun. It's well worth making the effort, but some of the Portuguese drivers made if feel pretty scary though. If you cross North to South, then it's free. We took the opportunity to extend...More

Beautiful bridge across the Tejo estuary. A lot longer and but almost half the height of the 25 de Abril bridge. About 18 km long with 6 lanes. A true marvel of engineering!!

This bridge was the longest bridge in Europe until the Crimean Bridge opened in 2018. However, after looking at both the pictures, I personally think that this bridge is way more beautiful to look at. We drove across this bridge on our drive to Evora....More

Yes, you must pay tolls when headed north. The lanes are clearly marked. The lanes with a large green V are for speed passes called Via Verde, that pay automatically, so avoid those lanes.

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
