Ponte da Arrabida
The Arrábida Bridge is an arch bridge over the Douro River that connects Porto (through the Arrábida area) to Vila Nova de Gaia.
Since the 1930s, it was necessary to create alternative connections to the old bridges (D. Maria Pia and D. Luís bridges) in order to respond to the growing flow of road traffic.
At the time of its construction in 1963, the bridge had the largest reinforced concrete arch of any bridge in the world.
The total length of the platform is 614.6m, with a width of 26.5m. Its span is 270 m, and 52 m of arrow, this arch consists of two parallel hollow ribs, 8 m wide, linked together by longitudinal and transverse bracing. It had two carriageways and two side lanes for pedestrians and cyclists. In the 1990s, the number of road lanes was changed.
The engineer responsible for its design and construction was Edgar António de Mesquita Cardoso, who had the collaboration of the architect Inácio Peres Fernandes and the engineer José Francisco de Azevedo e Silva.

The bridge is 371 meters long and 20 meters wide, with two carriageways in each direction. It has a 1 m wide central divider and 3 m side walkways with security guard and guardrails. The lighting is placed at a low level, allowing perfect lighting of the road, without shadows.

Una experiencia inolvidable. Las vistas de Oporto espectaculares desde el Duero. La tripulación un 10. Recomendada 100%
Amei esta viagem. Além de passar pelas paisagens maravilhosas do Porto, fomos acompanhados pela tribulação mais fantástica que jamais conheci, Inês e Hugo.
Foram atenciosos e sempre à disposição para que possamos nos divertir e celebrar a despedida de solteiro do nosso amigo.
O barco é bonito de morrer com música ao seu gosto.
Recomendo sem dúvida esta experiência !
Não é mais uma apreciação, é apenas a minha. Eu que não costumo escrever comentários, mas aqui por tudo valeu a pena.
Obrigada Inês e Hugo
