I had in fact cycled over one day very leisurely from the two landmarks bridges of Lisbon and I had been quite impressed with the length of this one ...it really looks like it in fact it does not end.

An impressive bridge, once the longest in Europe. It seems to stretch as far as the eye can see! A worthwhile walk along the river.

This is a spectacular bridge, both in the daylight and by night. If you want to have nice views, wait for the visit to Belem Tower and you will have very nice views of the Bridge. Another option, you can go to the Congress Center...More
