From the bridge you have a spectacular view over the Douro river and the city of Porto. The upper bridge can be reached easily.

The bridge along with the surroundings is a vivid picture of this extraordinary City. Take the metro (yellow line) and go through the upper stage. Just look at the views of the old town and the douro river. Walk through the lower stage and visit the old town on one side and the porto wine cellars on the other.

You can walk on both levels of this bridge. The lower one will take you to Vilanova de Gaia, where all the Porto Wine Caves are.

Porto offers a free wonderful view from the bridge to the city if you climb there on your own or a an affordable price for coming there by the cableway or a funicular. A very relaxing place.
