This is a really pretty bridge and I think that it reminds me of many other bridges too, but this one is really long!

Lisbon is justifiably proud of this smaller version the Golden Gate bridge done by the same architect. It is every bit as elegant and, much as I am attached to the Golden Gate, find this to be easier to appreciate because of its smaller scale.

We passed the bridge late in the afternoon so the traffic was light. The view was from both sides was amazing. there was low tide and we saw the fishermen picking clams. It is the longest bridge in Europe over a river. If you go to lisbon it is a most.

Hard to make a review of a bridge - its a bridge, what can you say other than agreeing on that it is of a very nice design. It is a spectacular drive to cross the bridge - best seen coming from the south.

Spanning 17 km across the river, you can just make out the other bank on a clear day. The walk along the river front is beautiful.
