We chose to drive over this bridge and it is a breathtaking experience. The view is great and you can see Jesus' statue all the time!

Opened in 1998 in time for the Expo now 20 years ago. Tagus river crossing. Northbound to Lisbon toll. South bound free.

This is an outstanding bridge. Lovely to look across the water and see the big statue at the side of the bridge. No doubt a remarkable feat of engineering

Regardless of which came first. this bridge is beautiful. You do not have to drive across it to enjoy it. Just enjoy the view of it from many angles in Lisbon.

Beautiful bridge across the Tejo estuary. A lot longer and but almost half the height of the 25 de Abril bridge. About 18 km long with 6 lanes. A true marvel of engineering!!

As I remember you only pay as you enter Lisbon, not departing. It wasn’t vet expensive just a few Euros.

When you turn in your car inform the rental company of your mishap and they will solve it and charge you for it. If you don't do that you will have trouble in many places in Europe
