Beautiful bridge across the Tejo estuary. A lot longer and but almost half the height of the 25 de Abril bridge. About 18 km long with 6 lanes. A true marvel of engineering!!

This is the longest bridge in Europe and it is an impressive sight to see as it stretches its full length across the Tejo

I had in fact cycled over one day very leisurely from the two landmarks bridges of Lisbon and I had been quite impressed with the length of this one ...it really looks like it in fact it does not end.

When you turn in your car inform the rental company of your mishap and they will solve it and charge you for it. If you don't do that you will have trouble in many places in Europe
