Longer than the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and quite similar to it in appearance, Ponte 25 de Abril 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. Put Ponte 25 de Abril and other Lisbon attractions into our Lisbon trip maker website, and watch your holiday take shape.
Ponte 25 de Abril reviews
We walked from Praca do Commercio along the waterfront promenade late one afternoon and joined the throng of people who were all gathering, waiting for the sun to set behind the bridge. People... more »
Very impressive and massive bridge, visible from far far away, a true Lisbon landmark! The bridge actually has 2 levels, the top one is for regular traffic, and below for trains more »
The view from on top of the bridge is nice. You get to know the structure better. However, it is a bit noisy and unfortunately you cannot see downtown Lisbon from up there. It would be very nice around the sunset time.
one of the most wonderful bridges in the world! in my opinion. look up the name and learn something about the revolution! and: its LONGER (not higher though) than Golden Gate Bridge, (-sorry SF), but true.
