    A project of the engineer Teófilo Seyrig, the "Luis I" Bridge was inaugurated on 31st October 1886. The bridge is built of two metal trays supported by a great iron arch and five piers with span 391m.

    Paris has the Eiffel tower we have D. Luís bridge. Contemplate this wonder of engineering from the XIX century from Gaia side and cross the upper deck to see a wonderfull view of Porto.

    Since the city is built onto 2 cliffs on either side of the river, this Eiffel Tower-style bridge is a defining feature and a must see. Itself very cool, the view over the city also incredible.

    It's a double decked bridge, so make sure you make it to the top, provides a wonderful view on top of Porto.

    One if the most beautiful in the world - bridge, view, city! Fascinating day and night, with all these colours and river shine.

    Totally worth visiting both on the top of the bridge as on the bottom layer. Masterpiece of architecture.

    The best spot in Porto. You can take a pic an amazing river sight. Be careful when you try to take a pic, because there is an underground on the bridge (Interesting!)

    On the right side of the bridge (Porto) there are the pillars of the previous bridge (1843).

    Officially the bridge don't have the "Dom" at the name. There's a rumour that the king didn't appear to the inauguration and the people takes off the "Dom" and the name passed to "Ponte Luiz I".

    From Ribeira district: walk over it on the lower part of the bridge and walk at the river side of Gaia to the cable cars to get a ride to the top. Then walk over it again, on the upper part
