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 drove on this bridge while going to the Cristo Rei. From there the view is amazing. Pity that there is no pedestrian lane on the bridge.

A majestic bridge joining the south shore to the north in Lisbon. It is high, long and painted red like the golden gate in San Francisco.

The bridge is a double decker bridge - road and railway; viewed from street level it cuts across the Santos area and is impressive.

The bridge is incredibly beautiful. You have a more adequate view of it from the Christ the King sanctuary. For some time you may be transported to San Francisco. It is just beautiful.

We have done this trip several times and the previous answer is spot on. It is an easy and pleasant trip to do. Once you are at the statue you can ascend the lift for fantastic views of the city. There are garden areas... More
