This bridge is unmistakeable if you are in Lisbon - it stretches 17km, and driving across it gives great views to either side. The road itself is in excellent condition and at 120km/h you can cover the distance quite quickly.

cross the bridge just for crossing, it is impressive. And to arrive in (or to come back to) Lisbon over this bridge is always a happening

I was lucky enough to transit on this astonishing construction year ago, and this time I took my time to admire it from any perspective! Take pics of it from the telecabines, you will enjoy the view so very much!

An very interesting bridge for Photographers. During sunrise (10 min before) driving from Lisbon out to Alcochete (Outlet) or during sundowner other way around... you will get unique pictures. You do have a view as well to the Bridge 25. April (far, but with a good camera).

Worth to drive just because Vasco da Gama Bridge is 17km which is the longest in Europe. Way from Lisboan is free, but you pay 2.25 € when going to Lisbon

A modern engeneering piece in an historic setting. Among the history-filled surroundings and the castles of Lisbon, a modern bridge which crosses into the future. Very interesting contrast.
