Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
Traverse the iconic Ponte de Dom Luis I along its pedestrian pathway for beautiful views of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. When it was completed in 1886, this 172 m (564 ft) bridge was the longest of its kind in the world. Now the two-hinged, double-deck, arched steel bridge is beloved for the spectacular vantage points it offers. The bridge is comprised of a lower section for cars and an upper section for a light rail and pedestrians. If you walk across the bridge, you can take photos from the high above the Douro River.

  • Walking on the top level is amazing! The view you have at that point (and looking down through the openings......) is very nice.  more »

  • Amazing bridge which can be walked over from below and above. There is a great walk up a very steep hill at the side from below which is worth doing too. Spectacular views and well worth a visit.
  • Sunset over Porto 🇵🇹 The Dom Luís I Bridge offers impressive panoramic views of the city of Porto. It does not matter what time you go: you will be right for sure. However, I recommend you to go there for the sunset time. It will leave you speechless 😎😎
