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 saw this bridge as we were driving around Lisbon and while on a scenic river cruise. It looks a lot like the Golden Gate bridge of San Francisco.

This bridge will remind you of the San Francisco bridge and the best view by far is from the Christ the King statue. You can even go up into the statue and see forever. Worth the 5 euros because the sights from the point are truly fantastic.

The famous bridge over the Rio Tejo is a beautiful suspension bridge constructed in 1966. We rented a car to travel around the city and crossed the bridge twice in a day. The traffic is enormous, despite its six car lanes (and two train tracks at the lower level), they say that more than two hundred thousand cars cross the... More

I was on a tour of Lisbon with Lisbon Riders on Monday 17th April with my wife and other groups. We drove on the bridge after leaving Belem to see Cristo de Rei. The drive was very pleasant and not a lot of traffic. When we arrived at the location where Cristo de Rei was erected, we were able to... More

The view at the park where there is an elevator up was a stunning view of the Arbil Bridge. Recommend to take the elevator up just... More

From all sides down the river Tejo you can see this wonderful bridge which remembers you to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It was built in the year of 1966 and was first named Ponte Salazar. At this time it was the longest hanging bridge in Europe. The originally four traffic lanes has been expanded by two.

We went over this suspension bridge to reach 'christ the redeemer' attraction. Beautiful views over the sea, especially at night with lights on.
