From the bridge you have some of the most amazing views of Porto and also Gaia. You may also see some “flying boys” jumping in the river while you’re there!

Just bring under this bridge is such a joy. Impressive in its structure yet you feel a sense of history and nostalgia just being there.

Great views from both side on the bridge! If you lucky enough you might see some kids bridge jumping! Give them 10 euro and they jump!

Walk across the very top was a bit scary but plenty room to pass each other. I walked back on the underneath section. Great views

Hope your not scared of heights because this is very very high. Hold onto your hat that’s for sure. The railway goes across the very top and the cars on the lower level. You can walk over both. We saw some younger guys jumping off...More
