25 de Abril Bridge, Lisbon

4.4
#30 of 973 in Things to do in Lisbon
Longer than the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and quite similar to it in appearance, 25 de Abril Bridge 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.

  • Viewed this on my bus tour today.It is a very impressive sight even if you are only passing under it.  more »
  • Step here often drive and the bridge is indeed superb. But the day I walked by it was spectacular. It is a shame that is only once a year!!!

  • Beautiful bridge (brother of the bridge of San Francisco), visible from just about anywhere, but the best point of view it's on the esplanade of the Christ.

  • Beautiful Golden gate type suspension bridge. Lovely drive and beautiful scenery all around along with the Tagus river flowing below.👌✌
  • The view is just beautiful, at any point. There is a path where you can walk, run or in a bicycle. Lot of restaurants as soon as you get close to the bridge which is nice, the prices are okay if you have money. Watching a sunset here is one of the best things, very chill and very nice. The bridge is beautiful for photographers. The noise is the worst part as it gets very loud here, definitely way too loud. Something should be done to lower the amount of noise pollution here because it is definitely getting too much, even when you are far away already.
  • Low traffic most of the times, fantastic view no matter how many times you see it, the only done side is the need for car and paying taxes to cross the bridge
  • I made people crazy that day. From cristo del rei i made them believe i was in brasil an san Francisco all in one day.
  • Beautiful, you only have to pay 1’80 € if you are using a car to go through this bridge, the views are very nice, you can see the Rio Tajo flowing, I also recommend going to the Cristo Rio (estatue), to get even better views, only 5€.
