“A must-have for bridge lovers”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

I love bridges.
And this one is really a special one.
You'd better have a car to cross it, but also doable with a taxi I believe.
It is much better to do it at daytime, or when it is not too dark, as otherwise you feel you are just like on a highway.

You might want to take one of the higher buildings in PArque das Nacoes to have an aerial view.

Or if you are quick make sure you book a seat on the RIGHT side of your flight whae you depart, so you can enjoy a perfect aerial view.

I love bridges, and that is the longest in Europe, was nice to drive trough it, but what is even nicer is to see it from a plane.

“Impressive!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We crossed this bridge while traveling from Lisbon towards Seville and were quite impressed. We had seen it from the shore, but as you approach it it becomes even more impressive.
