Vasco da Gama Bridge

Lisbon, Portugal
5 / 5
The most impressive and longest European bridge over the Tagus River, stretching for 17 km. The grandiose design was erected in just 3 years, despite the incredible scale of the project. The bridge was launched on March 29, 1998. This date was not chosen by chance, since it was in 1498 that Vasco da Gama set sail on the sea route from Europe to India. The bridge was built with funds from the private company Lusoponte.

I drive over this bridge nearly every day. There is a beautiful and different view each time, in both directions driving 17 kilometres over water, feels like the ocean. Three lanes wide, smooth and modern. Very relaxing way to start and end a day. .. Read more »


Really nice piece of artwork architecture. Nice environment.


Beautiful bride, fluid traffic at all times.


This beautiful bridge is best looked at from the sky! Don't miss it when your flight takes-off/lands.


Its the longest bridge I have ever seen in my entire life. From the end I was standing I couldn't see the other end. Its massive and beautiful.
