Looks fine, but what else can one say? The design looks more Eiffel than Eiffel.It crosses at two levels. I am desparately trying to find the minimum characters required for a review!!

Although manny people think it's a Gustav Eiffel bridge, it's not!
It was projected and built by Théophile Seyrig's belgian company Société Willebroeck.
It is undoubtedly a wonderfull masterpiece, and icone to the city of Porto! A place where you can take mental pictures that will be remembered for a lifetime. A visit to Ribeira, on Porto's side of the River Douro is a must, at any daytime!

You just must walk one of these bridges when in Porto! It is just such an amazing view...but watch the wind!

Great views. Went on the road and rail parts, and it was spectacular. Views of the Porto boat trips.

This was one of our first stops in Porto. Mainly because it gave us spectacular views of both sides of the Douro river. It's also free. I couldn't stop gawking and taking pictures of Porto running straight up the hills. We walked across from the Riberia district and took the cable car down and back up on the other side.
