  • The locals call these the two towers and me, not being a Portuguese local, immediately thought of Lord of the Rings, the Two Towers. Nope, not those towers. This is such a beautiful spot to overlook the river and the north and south side riverbanks. And it's always enjoyable to people watch. If you go onto the bridge, just be patient and polite while walking because the sidewalk is quite narrow. Only holds two people wide and you brush shoulders when walking by, so please don't walk side by side.
  • They are just pillars, 4/5
