Fantastic view

Impressive metal bridge from 1886 with double decked. We can cross walking and have a fantastic view of both sides of the river and the two cities.

Sooner r later you're going to walk this bridge at least once! Great views of the old town be way and port estates the other. (At the top level you are ready to descend to the port estates so combine with a tour of one of them.)

Even if not built by Gustave Eiffel, you can clearly notice that the bridge is a result of his engineering cabinet. Well maintained, now adapted for light rail vehicles, an ex-libris of the city of Porto.

An engineering masterpiece consisting of Tarmac road to the lower crossing and a metro rail to the top. Crowning the top of Porto & Gaia, this impressive bridge crosses the Douro River. You can walk at either level.

A beautiful bridge that will alow you to easily go from the historic centre of Porto to the Port wine cellars, located in Vila Nova de Gaia's riverside. It is absolutely AMAZING to cross on St. John's Day, with the crowd occupying the entire bridge, and to feel it swinging.

We crossed this bridge on foot on both the top and bottom levels though you can also cross the top level by travelling on the Metro.

It has a beautiful view around it and you can cross on the bottom part on foot. Take a boat tour and go under it, it`s worth it!
