Description

The Dom Luís I Bridge in Porto is one of the city’s top landmarks and is one of Portugal’s most iconic structures. Spanning the River Douro and joining Porto to Vila Nova de Gaia, this metal arch bridge was engineered by a student of world renowned French engineer, Gustave Eiffel. While the lower deck of the bridge carries road traffic and has narrow walkways lining it, the upper deck is reserved for pedestrians and the metro railway line. Visitors who decide to walk across the bridge using the upper deck will be treated to absolutely magnificent views of the Old Town, Vila Nova de Gaia and the Douro River.
