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.

I travel to Lisbon quite often and I always have a walk on the river going from the center to the bridge. You will get the best sunsets and view, especially with the lights of the bridge. Loving it :)

The 25 de Abril Bridge reminds you of the Golden Gate Bridge. I got several good photos of the bridge from the Torre de Belem. It makes a nice silhouette with a cruise ship in the foreground.

Pretty bridge that can be accessed from many different angles along the river front. The bridge is a pretty good copy of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and is especially attractive in Sunset and Sunrise light.

Basically a mini version of the Golden gate bridge in San Francisco the 25 de Abril bridge is an impressive structure. You can't walk over it though sadly. The sound of hundreds of vehicles driving over it sound like a swarm of angry wasps

I walked for 3 hours trying to find this location. It looks amazing and was worth the walk however, you cannot go on the bridge as it is used for really busy traffic, so was only able to view it from below. Plenty of shops beneath it.

an amazing construction, in size and form, with the importance the Golden Gate bridge has - even if the other side of the river Tejo is less of a hotspot...

Designed and Built by the same company, which did the sister and more famous Golden Gate bridge, here the builders have also added a railway underneath, there are plenty of bars you can have a drink near it while you get your shots. Unlike the Golden Gate bridge though you can't walk across it, and there is a lot of... More

the 25th of April Bridge which was completed in 1966 and was originally named after the then dictator, Salazar. The bridge was renamed after the successful revolution of April 25th 1974. If you think that it resembles the Golden Gate Bridge, then your comparison is correct, it was designed by the consortium that constructed the Golden Gate bridge in San... More

I been in San Fransisco long time ago. This is like a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge. You can cross the bridge by car or train. If you wan to visit the Cristo Rei statue you have to cross this bridge. The statue is about 5 minutes by car when crossing the bridge. On your way back to the... More

One cannot cross the bridge by foot, therefore I did not find it very interesting. But there are many restaurants situated nearby, that offer food for a reasonable price and that have nice terraces. However, we choose to go elsewhere because of the terrible noise of traffic crossing the bridge :-(
