“One of the most beautiful bridges in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The architecture of this bridge is amazing. Makes for a great photo op. Although very long it is easy to navigate with its multi-lanes. On a clear day the view of Lisbon and the river below makes for a great vista.

“Wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

When I used to live in Portugal, I made countless journeys across this technological and cultural marvel. It stilled wowed me after crossing it so many times, a great view. Roll down the windows for that great breeze, and enjoy the longest bridge in Europe, but watch out for those Portuguese drivers ;).

“Amazing bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We went across this bridge yesterday and what a buzz eleven miles long......never been on one that long before. It is beautiful to look at and is architecturally awesome . The views of the river are spectacular I didn't take photographs as I don't think you can stop. You have to go all the way.

NIce view at dusk/down and by night. Travel to the south side and have a glimpse at Lisbon by night. Tolls apply.
