Took an UBER to go to Freeport Outlet near Lisbon and we passed thru this bridge. It is an Engineering marvel, the design and the length of span

Our guide told us this was Lisbon's Golden Gate Bridge. It is nice to admire from the river. You can see Christ the Redeemer on the other side as well.

You feel like you are transported to San Francisco when you first see this bridge. It is classic and you can take a boat ride under it or a ferry across the bay.
