Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Lisbon / Vasco da Gama 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.

Vasco da Gama Bridge Reviews
テージョ川沿いから初めて見た時は長さにびっくりしました。 今回はアレンテージョの方に行く時にバスで渡りましたが、ワクワクして気持ちが良かったです。 川の浅い所では貝か何かを取っている人がたくさんいました。 more »When I saw it for the first time from the Tagus River, I was surprised at the length. This time I went by bus when I went to Alentejo, but I was excited and comfortable. In the shallow place of the river, there were a lot of people who were taking shellfish or something.
Passamos pela ponte Vasco da Gama em nossa viagem pelo Alentejo. São 12km que impressionam pela beleza mas não tem onde parar para tirar fotos more »We passed the Vasco da Gama bridge on our trip through alentejo. It's 12km that impress beauty but there's nowhere to stop to take pictures
I drive over this bridge nearly every day. There is a beautiful and different view each time, in both directions driving 17 kilometres over water, feels like the ocean. Three lanes wide, smooth and modern. Very relaxing way to start and end a day. €2.80 toll going into Lisbon only. Have a nice ride!
Very photogenic bridge at sunset and sunrise. There are two good spots next to it with an amazing view.
