This suspension bridge across the Tagus River has the longest central span in Europe, at 1.5 miles. It also looks quite a bit like San Francisco's famed "Golden Gate Bridge," though this one was named after the revolution.

Our cab driver pointed out that this bridge was a copy of the Golden Gate Bridge. I was amused at the similarity. Being from the Bay Area, it's a nice bridge, but the Golden Gate it's not.

The bridge is a nice one, but in the end it is just a bridge. You can see it from everywhere and is not worth a special visit!

This impressive suspension bridge is a genuine ‘replica’ of the Golden Gate in San Francisco and links Lisbon with the neighbouring town of Almada. To complete the mix of imagery it points to the ‘copy’ of Rio’s Christ the Redeemer in Almada so as a photographic opportunity this is a gem.

If you can go up the statue of christ for the best view but also catch the Belem to Trafaria ferry and listen to the buzz of traffic when on the boat. When in the LX Factory you can marvel at the size of the bridge supports.

This bridge was built by the same architect as the San Francisco Bridge. Only difference is the slats. We come from Bristol so obviously it wasn't a patch on Brunels Suspension Bridge, but quite imposing. They also have a smaller Christ the Redeemed on the hill behind.

If you're from the bay area and am starting to get homesick, this bridge will make you feel better. You can look at the bridge from afar since there's so many areas where you'll be able to this bridge.

If you get the chance to drive to the other side or just stare at it from the river banks, it's most certainly worth a few minutes of contemplation. A must see!

As SF is far away, this is where you can see the copy :) Long bridge, great one. Color is the same. Xs between columns are different and there is a railroad under it, so you can take a train to the beach. :)
