Stretching over a kilometer across the Tagus river and towering 190 meters high, Ponte 25 de Abril is currently the 27th largest suspension bridge in the world. Because it looks almost exactly like the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, it's beauty is undeniable and it's prestige is often overstated.

    Originally named Ponte Salazar, it was renamed to it's current title following the Carnation Revolution in 1974. Often confused with the Golden Gate Bridge, it is painted the same international orange but was built by the American Bridge Company which in fact only built the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
