“A symbol a Porto:”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is one of the most beautiful bridges in Europe and arguably the most beautiful in Portugal. It was not built by Eiffel as many people think... It was built by a Belgian engineer. The only minus is the poor pedestrian crossing.

“Eiffel Tower sister”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

You shall surely remember walking through this marvelous bridge as much as you will remember being on the topmost floor of the Eiffel tower, by the same Engineer.

“Most beautiful spot to see Porto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

It is one of the most beautiful places to see Porto from above. Make sure to walk on top of the bridge were the rail line goes for great views. Go in the evening for great pictures of the amazing sunset of Porto!
