It is a conception of Mr Eiffel, the very same of Eiffel Tower in Paris. Nice views from both levels.
Awesome Place. It's must do in Porto. You have to Walk in the up part of the bridge, where the the Train cross the river, the view of Ribeira from there is Amazing!
Nice place to walk by. This is a centenary bridge wich is used by cars in the below deck and by a tram in the upper deck.
While it is just a bridge, it is really impressive to look at. Also, it has fantastic views over the city. There are two levels you can walk over- the upper level was much quieter when we visited and has better views.
As mentioned by other reviewers you don't have to be an architect to spot that it's very similar to the Eifel tower. So, therefore -my personal view- the same level of impressiveness as well as uglyness! A big pile of metal connecting to sides of a hsstoric, beautiful city! The views on the bridge are amazing!
This is a fabulous symbol of Porto as the Eiffel Tower is to Paris (same designer!) and well worth a walk over at both levels, road and rail. Fabulous views of the river and city.
Beautiful bridge, especially at night when it is lit up and you can see it from either side of the river with a beautiful backdrop. Frames the Douro River near the mouth.
We walked along the upper part to the other side of the river and captured some great photos of the sunset over Porto. The architecture was impressive. A trip to Porto would not be complete without walking across the bridge for a good perspective of the city.
