Vasco da Gama Bridge, Lisbon

(2,800+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
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 wasn't bothered about seeing this, but I am so glad I made the effort. It is quite simply breathtakingly stunning. It goes off into the distance you cannot see end to end. We took the metro and walk...  more »

  • The sky blue on water and its marolinhas adorn the horizon travel. Caution only to be guided to sneak in and out of the city.

  • Good to shop different items, huge supermarket, electronics store, excellent access from all public transportation. This means huge crowds, including people with luggage going to the airport, a few metro stops, and trains, departing from the same station as the mall. All types of people
  • Very good shopping. Clothes and footwear! Food court and supermarket. Close to transportation. Wide variety!
  • Fav shopping mall. Huge selection. Movie theatre. Continente. And not a confusing place.
  • Nice place to have some shopping done with a big selection of well known brands and stores as well as lots of restaurants with a river view!
  • Such a nice suburban Mall. A lot of shops and things to eat even in the food court. A must visit even if you are staying downtown
