Almost from everywhere in Lisbon, you will be able to see the iconic "Ponte 25 de Abril". It connects Lisbon to the town of Almada, on the left bank of the Tagus River. As a suspension bridge, it has two decks, the upper one has six lanes for traffic in general and the lower carries a double railway track, on a lenght of 2.277 meters. It is a beautiful bridge, named after the date of the Portuguese "Carnation Revolution" and is indeed a Lisbon's postcard. And remember, it is not a bridge for pedestrians. Enjoy!

25 de Abril Bridge is a long suspension bridge over the Tagus River, in Lisbon. It is the main bridge in the city. It is named after the day on which the people of Portugal staged a revolution to overthrow the dictatorship ruling the country at the time. The bridge was built in 1966 and named after the dictator Salazar. However a 1974 coup led to a democratic change in government, and with that to a name change for the bridge. It is a lovely bridge and the views are quite wonderful.

Our ship sailed under the bridge as we were going into port. Quite an amazing sight. For a while I thought we were in San Francisco.

During my time in Lisbon, my travels took me over the 25 de Abril Bridge. As with most people who have visited the Golden Gate Bridge in the United States, the 25 de Abril Bridge bears a remarkable similarity to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. The main difference is that the 25 de Abril Bridge spans over the Tagus River in Portugal and was named in honor of the Carnation Revolution which overthrew a dictatorship starting on April 25, 1974. This is a well maintained bridge that services vehicles everyday, but does not allow pedestrian traffic with the exception of an annual half marathon.

This bridge looks a lot like the Golden Gate in San Francisco. And was made by the same company. It’s pretty nice.
