Breathtaking! Bridge is beautiful and reminds me of the bridge in Rio that connects Rio to Niteroi, but this one is a lot nicer! You can also see it from the aquarium!

Beautiful bridge reminds you of the Golden Gate in San Francisco. I believe it was made by the same people tht made the Golden Gate

At 17 kilometres long, this is probably the longest bridge I have ever travelled across. It is a fantastic piece of engineering and an impressive sight.

Stunning structure. Very impressive to look at as you are driving over it. Worth taking the time to cross it to get a closer look at it.

This is probably the first thing you will see from your flight. Lisbon is not a very big city and most attractions are around the same area near centre. To visit here you have to travel by tram outside the city centre.

The Longest bridge in Lisboa and the longest i have ever drive. It is an amazing architecture with the malls standing next to it. The view from the plane is also amazing

I had a look on it from helicopter perspective and it was fantastic. It's worth to see it and make a picture if you are visiting Lisbon.

the longest bridge I've ever go through. I don't think you have to drive through if you don't need - I was coming back from south to airport, so it's then the natural way to go. Otherwise - just have a look from the bank.

While your plane lands in Lisbon the most noteworthy landmark seen from the sky is the remarkable stretch of the VASCO DA GAMA bridge, i was surprised by the length of the bridge. the drive over the bridge takes a long from end to end, but however you appreciate the bridge standing at the root of the Vasco da Gama...

Drove along this bridge last week. Pretty impressive seeing the bridge stretch from one side to the other. If you look right as you leave Lisbon you can see the other bridge and the statue of Jesus Christ.
