sitting on the terace of the Myriad hotel, overlooking the Tejo river and the Vasco da Gama bridge which leads you to the south of Portugal, the water and the view and the bridge make you dream of infinity

This has to be one of the most beautiful bridges in the world, and for a short time it was the longest in Europe at 17.2 km. Then some spoilsport built one a bit longer.

What a feat of engineering, this bridge and causeway spanning the Tagus Estuary is 11 miles long. It is the longest bridge in Europe and should be included as one of the best feats of bridge building anywhere in the world.

This is a lovely bridge crossing the Tagus River. Resembles the Golden Gate. We both cruised under it and drove over it with tour bus. Makes a nice picture spot.

Don't miss the drive over this very tall version of San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge. And while your at it, check out the Statue on the opposite end.

Wonderful view. Marvelous piece of engineering. 10km over the water. But honestly I don't know how one plan to visit it. We were visiting it as we were on the way of coming from Madrid to Lisbon. Saw it from far away and also went on it. I think if you come to Lisbon by air, then planning to visit... More
