“Sightseeing from the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A bridge by the river linking Oporto to Gaia. A beatiful view over the river and to the city that is near the river. Must visit if you go to Oporto.

“There and back again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is just about the best bridge ever. we walked across the bottom level, along the river to the cable car, took the cable car back up the river, and then crossed back over on the top level. Great views the whole time

“The Portuguese love their bridges!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Civil engineering is clearly a talent the Portuguese have, born out by the 5 or 6 bridges close to the Ribeira district. Some are wonderfully modern and this is a stylish older landmark built by a friend of Eiffel

“Breathtaking views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

A must go to all the visitors. Amazing steel work and you can get to the upper bridge by funicular, paying only 2 euros. Make sure you take a picture of the many padlocks the young people leave attached to the bridge.

My favourite bridge ever! D. Luis I Bridge is a masterpiece - elegant, light looking and absolutely breathtaking. Simply love it! Cross it on foot while admiring the scenery. D. Luis, you have my heart!
