Owner description: This suspension bridge across the Tagus River has the longest central span in Europe, at 1.5 miles. It also looks quite a bit like San Francisco's famed "Golden Gate Bridge," though this one was named after the revolution.

The best photos I took was when I was on the bus going to Belém. Almost fell out trying to get a decent photo with the Cristo Rei in the background but was well worth it.

I maybe in the minority here but consider me unimpressed with the bridge. Is it big? Yes. Is it awfully similar looking to San Francisco? Yes. There just wasn't much for me to see here. It is a big reddish bridge that connects Lisbon across the Tagus river. I went here, saw it, took a picture and went about my... More

A great bridge to take pictures, during the day or at night. It can be seen from many places in the city.

The 25th of April Bridge is a beautiful bridge. Spectacular view in a sunny day. Took a taxi ride to Christ the King.

On cruising into Lisbon this bridge is magnificent - built by the same designer as the Golden gate bridge - it is truly spectacular

The area at the foot of the bridge is nice and there is a big park to walk around and on the other side of the bridge is Lisbon Christ the Redeemer. The traffic on the bridge is heavy around the peak time and you might want to avoid it.

You get great views of the bridge from the north bank of the Tagus. We drove across it too in our hire car, it was fabulous, even though it was raining and we'd just been robbed. You also get really good views of the bridge from the Hop On-Hop Off tourist bus (red Belem line). But as well as this... More

Planned by the same architects as the ones doing the Golden Gate, this bridge offers a funny and interesting experience.

This bridge is an amazing sight that can be seen from most places on the river in Lisbon. However when the rain descends it gets lost in the clouds. I would have liked to have gone across it but I wasn't in Lisbon long enough. But it's a great think to see.
