Longer than the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and quite similar to it in appearance, Ponte 25 de Abril connects Lisbon to Almada and services around 380,000 people daily. With a length of 2,277 m (7,470 ft), it's one of the longest suspension bridges in Europe. Because of heavy seismic activity in the region, it was built using the deepest foundation in the world, which reaches 80 m (262 ft) down into the riverbed. This massive red bridge can be a majestic addition to your holiday photo archive, or a picturesque backdrop for a picnic. You can cross it by car or by train.

Ponte 25 de Abril Reviews
Un pont superbe et immense. On peut le voir à partir de différents points de vue. De belles photos à faire more »A beautiful and immense bridge. You can see it from different points of view. Beautiful photos to make
Bel édifice que ce pont haubané reliant les deux rives du Tage depuis les années soixante; avant c’était le bac ! more »Beautiful building that this guyed bridge linking the two shores of the Tagus since the sixties; before it was the BAC!
The view from on top of the bridge is nice. You get to know the structure better. However, it is a bit noisy and unfortunately you cannot see downtown Lisbon from up there. It would be very nice around the sunset time.
one of the most wonderful bridges in the world! in my opinion. look up the name and learn something about the revolution! and: its LONGER (not higher though) than Golden Gate Bridge, (-sorry SF), but true.
