Everyone likes a good view, and the ponte does not disappoint. It is situated in an ideal position overlooking the iconic houses in Porto's Ribeira and Gaia's caves. The convenient location means that it does not take much for you to walk across the ponte, either for the express purpose of getting between Gaia and Porto or just for the sake of it. Pedestrians cross the metro tracks freely, but be careful to listen out for oncoming trains. We don't want any accidents causing restrictions on foot traffic on the bridge.
