A bit narrow on the lower floor where the cars pass, but great views from the upper floor (the one with train tracks). The only way to get to the other side of the river to visit the Porto wine cellars. Interesting and historical construction, a must see in Porto.

A fun place to view the sights along the Douro river. We saw a bicycle race finish at the bridge while young men jumped from the side of the bridge into the Douro. A relaxing place to stroll around on a sunny day.

Bridge built in the style construction of the Eiffel Tower. Beautiful views into a deep valley Riedy Douro. The bridge connects two distinct parts of Porto town.

Worth simply walking across bridge - you can see the trains cross both ways; Stunning views over the river and Porto itself; the funicular railway on one side of the river bank and the cable car originates from a station high on opposite bank.

Bridge links Gaia and Porto; we walked towards Gaia on the lower level (automobile and side-walk) of the bridge, and back to Porto on the upper (tram and pedestrian) level of the bridge. Beautiful views of Porto from the upper level.

This bridge is a simbol of the city. This is a double-decked metal arch bridge that spans the Douro, allowing to cross to Gaia and enjoying a great view over the river.
