The longest bridge in Europe is a feat of engineering! On top of that a wonderful sight to see. Traveling on it is certainly a great experience.

Vasco da Gama bridge is just spectacular. It is one of a kind. You will never find one like it anywhere. The Portuguese must be so proud to own a bridge like that.

This bridge is a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, a must drive through if you've never been to the real one.

It is a long bridge but deserves the way south and north! In the middle of the way you can see Tejo all around you, 25 April bridge, and the Christ! Really nice way to see a big picture of Lisbon

the best view is of course from the new EXPO district in Lissabon. There is also the best Oceanario in the world ever! :)
