“Impressive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We crossed this bridge while traveling from Lisbon towards Seville and were quite impressed. We had seen it from the shore, but as you approach it it becomes even more impressive.

“Great Bridge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Big, long and joins Eastern Lisbon with roads to Setubal (and other destinations, no doubt) and Arrabida. Saw flamingoes at the southern end in the small ponds next to the sea. There is a toll of a couple of Euros when travelling west towards Lisbon. Take first exit once in lisbon for Parque Naceos.

“Big... very big”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Well, it's the longes bridge in Europe. It's more than 17 km long. I like large structures so it was fascinating to me. While standing on shore, you can't even see the whole bridhe without turning about.
