#1 of 555 in Things to do in Porto
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.

  • This bridge was actually built or designed by Eiffel, as the tower in Paris. After having this information you can see clearly the same method of constructions with iron.  more »
  • Certainly take the time to check out. We took the Teleferico up to the top and then walked across it. Much safer than walking on the bottom part, because that's where the buses and cars go.  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 😎😎
