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.

  • Not a lot of point in visiting the site as you get a better view from a distance. Particularly impressive to sail under on a river cruise.

  • One of the best bridges I have seen, highly recommend the views from Sanctuary of Christ the King. Great structure.

  • Beautiful bridge. It reminds San Francisco bridge in California, but much longer. It's very accessible and if you want to experience the best view, then take a walk or a better scooter ride along the Tagus river.
  • Viewing the April 25th Bridge from the heart of Lisbon’s waterfront area was a real treat, especially as the sun rose early in the crisp, summer morning. Immediately upon seeing it, I drew comparisons to its “cousin” across the pond, the Golden Gate Bridge—not to start a competition, but this one sure makes its mark. The extent and progression of human design and engineering capabilities…man. Remarkable. Driving across the bridge or not, it’s a must to view this marvel of design when in Lisbon.
