Great place to take scenic photos of the Douro River and Porto. You can take photos from both the lower and upper parts of the bridge.

“One of the symbols of Porto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Our first time in Porto, we just walk from our hotel to explore what the city like, When we got to the river bank, what a beautiful view at the front of us! Wow! It's amazing view! The bridge is very stunning with the views along the river bank.

“It's a bridge.”

Looks fine, but what else can one say? The design looks more Eiffel than Eiffel.It crosses at two levels. I am desparately trying to find the minimum characters required for a review!!

“A Masterpiece by Théophile Seyrig - student and future associate of Gustav Eiffel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Although manny people think it's a Gustav Eiffel bridge, it's not!
It was projected and built by Théophile Seyrig's belgian company Société Willebroeck.
It is undoubtedly a wonderfull masterpiece, and icone to the city of Porto! A place where you can take mental pictures that will be remembered for a lifetime. A visit to Ribeira, on Porto's side of the River Douro is a must, at any daytime!
