There are four choices to cross this bridge. You can walk across the top and lower, by car or bus on the lower and by metro across the top. the view from the top - unbelievable!

One of the main sightseeings of Porto. Walk on over and see how the bridge is beautiful constructed by a fellow engineer of Mr. Eifel. Crossing the famous Douro river and connecting Porto with Villa Nova de Gaia.
