About
The only place in Europe where one can visit the arch of a bridge, experiencing an both iconic and impressive building for its size and elegance; it is the only national monument of the twentieth century in Porto. All tours are guided and include a number of safety equipments - harness, lifeline and handrail; even those who have vertigo can climb! Once we reach the top, there is a unique view of Porto, in a quiet and relaxing place that is now open to the public for the first time in 53 years. At the foot of the arch, an exhibition on the construction of Arrabida and the other 5 bridges that connect Porto and Gaia invites for a stroll on the riverside.

Brilliant adventure, highly recommend - its not as scary as you think it will be or as hard to climb. Our guide was brilliant. Views are amazing - just do it ❤

Number 1 thing to do in Porto
Sep 2021 • Friends
We climbed the bridge at 2:30 in the afternoon, and the views of Porto were fantastic.
It rained during our ascent, though we didn’t really notice, as we were focused on our climb.
Our guide was very friendly, it felt like everything was done at a comfortable pace, & it wasn’t as hard to get to the top as I’d feared.

A little bit overpriced for what they offer. However, the experience is worth. The views from the bridge are unique. Recommended if you are not afraid of heights.

It was a perfect sunset with a Port wine toast over the Douro River. I wish I came back every day to enjoy the best city in the world.

A unique way to see Porto from above.

Great way to see the river and very nice views of Porto!

The walk starts with a quick safety briefing and the the group puts on their harnesses to get ready for the climb. We had small children with us and they managed quite well. The activity is pretty awesome and Mariana our guide was the best! We had a lot of fun and even the people in our group who were afraid of heights found the climb easy to do.

It is great to know you liked your visit! Thank you for your honesty regarding the price. This is important for us to understand your perception as a visitor. The maximum capacity of the visits is 13 people, that are always accompanied by a guide. So it is always a relatively small group, which allows us to have more time with each visitor, but it means that our costs are higher as well.

Pricey but fun
Jul 2021
We had fun on this experience and both of the guides were great. However the entrance fee seemed high for what was essentially a walk up stairs to a nice view.

Thank you for your honest review, Abigail. We have set the price looking at activities such as the 6-bridge cruise, the World of Discoveries and Sea Life; unlike these, visits to the Arrábida arch are always guided, in groups of up to 13 people. Moreover, it is a unique experience in an unusual building, which for the first time in 53 years is open to the public in a legal and safe way. In any case, we hope to enrich the experience with a more complete exhibition and video contents about the construction. If you have other suggestions, they are always welcome.
