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.

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.

Looks like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. Beautiful view of Lisbon driving across the river. You can see lots of containers and container ships. You can also see cruise ships.

Very pretty Bridge with large statue of Jesus Christ in the background. Many beautiful picture opportunities. Great idea to drive into town on this Bridge and ride out on the Vasco de Gamma Bridge.

We went under it by boat, bus and rail, around it by bus, and passed by on foot. We did not cross it though which is a shame because that after all is its purpose.One way or another you cannot miss this bridge and it is photogenic.

When you see this bridge you think its a trick, but it is due for a check up in in Spring. It is colorful and it is a suspension briidge.
