“golden gate”(115 reviews)
“cristo rei”(34 reviews)
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.

We went out to visit the statue, and to get there, we took the train from Lisbon over ( under actually ) the bridge & got off at a station on the southern side of the river. Takes about 4-5 minutes to cross. BUT, it...More

It looks like the bridge in San Francisco. You can see it from Belem, from City Center and from ferries when you are swimming by Tag. It's huge and make nice impression.

Looks a lot like the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco!! The car and train bridge crosses the Tagus River. Nice view of the bridge are available from the Padrao Dos Descobri Mentos and from the deck of a cruise ship.... see photos.

This is just such a terrific structure on 2 fronts: the bridge is visually beautiful and the historic attachment is emotionally beautiful. Built by an American bridge company, this orange suspension bridge bears resemblance (and comparison) to San Francisco's landmark bridge. The Tagus River is...More

San Francisco and Lisbon have a lot of similarities, not only the bridge. But the younger sister is also very picturesque. Take a walk alongside the river Tejo and enjoy a spectacular view, no matter where you are. You can‘t walk over it though (only...More

A nice quick glance back when visiting the Monument of Discoveries. If you’ve been to San Francisco and seen the bridge up close this is a nice double from a distance. Just consider it a nice bonus view.

A lovely bridge during the day but also during the night. It's always full of traffic but it's worth to take a look at it and admire how beautiful it is

Based on the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, this is a fabulous bridge that is worth viewing from both sides - especially from the Jesus statue. It's incredibly high and quite complicated to get to by car, but definitely worth it!

I went by bus and got off by the bridge, so I didn't see where you go to cross the bridge because i was underneath it. You can't cross the bridge by foot. You can cross the river by ferry if you go to Cais do Sodré... More

It's pretty easy to reach there, just take a ferry from Cais da sodre to Cacilhas and from there take a bus, you get return tickets for ferry and bus, it's costs less than 5 Euro
