Vasco da Gama Bridge, Lisbon
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
Stretching across the Tagus River, Vasco da Gama Bridge represents the longest bridge in Europe. Armando Rito designed this cable-style bridge to relieve traffic in Lisbon and transport visitors from other parts of Europe to Expo 98, which was held in Parque das Nacoes. Construction began in 1995 on the bridge--which is 17km (11 mi) long, much of which is above water, and contains six road lanes--and was completed by 1998. Drive across this bridge, named for famed explorer Vasco da Gama, or view its massive size from a park bench on either side of the river.

I love this bridge! I actually reduced my speed (in the right lane only! 100-110 kph) to fully enjoy the magnificent construction and engineering. It's worth the toll coming back to Lisbon! Seattle is ready for a bridge like this over to the peninsula. I crossed it twice, each way!
Felt amazing driving on the bridge with the abundance of water around me!! Truly amazing and uncalled for!!!
17 km . Be aware and careful. sometimes the young people organise ilegal car races by night. Besides that it's amazing
Great and we'll built bridge with accident support. Tolls aren't pricey
Mind-blowing architecture! The bridge is beautiful and it is the longest bridge in Europe, so you have to see it. The "beach" area near it, from the Lisboa side, is a very quite place for some promenade walking and enjoying the bridge. There are small pier-like structures right next to it - good spot for the pictures and for some sunbathing.
