Fodor's Review

Lisbon's first suspension bridge across the Rio Tejo, linking the Alcântara and Almada districts, stands 230 feet above the water and stretches almost 2½ km (1½ mile). Reminiscent of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, it's somewhat smaller but still a spectacular sight from any direction, although most gasps are reserved for the view from the top downward. Overlooking the bridge from a hill on the south bank is the Cristo Rei —Christ the King—statue, which is smaller and stiffer than Rio's more famous Redeemer. The observation deck, from where you can actually look down on the bridge, is open daily. To get here, catch a 101 from the south-bank ferry station of Cacilhas.
