    Today the bridge is one of the monuments of Porto. Is disabled. Is very nice and high. I recommend the boat trip by seven bridges of the Duero to enjoy not only this bridge as the other in addition to contemplate Porto, Vila Nova de Gaia and its star the Douro River. Do the ride out of Gaia (fewer and cheaper) is better than leaving the Cais da Ribeira.

  • Another great metallic bridge over Douro...maybe a bit far to go by foot. It was a train bridge now decommissioned but maintained due to its beaty
  • IDEA to USE the BRIDGE) good afternoon readers, today it doesn't mean an idea of pensr in ponte d. maria pia. Lately the bridge has lost the attention and your populidade. For me, the Mayor of the port should by in use the bridge. Maybe to pass people. THE BIGGEST MISTAKE IN THE WORLD WAS CLOSE TO MARIA PIA POBTE

  • Can't Miss Maria Pia. I went there by train many times. The passage above the Douro was slow... we don't see the bridge when it was above the water, you could just hear him sing by vibration effect... I remember... it is already far away.
