A promenade by the Douro will begin with the Arrabida bridge. A remarkable bridge of Portugal, both for its dimensional characteristics as well as for its architectural and historic interest. It was designed in March 1952 by Edgar Antonio Cardoso de Mesquita. Arrabida bridge was for some time the world record holder for arch bridges reinforced concrete through his doorway nearly 270 m.
Slowly our boat arrives in Porto, within focus Luis 1st bridge and a magnificent view of old Porto, a mosaic of colors.
The bridge Louis I. was built in 1881 by engineer Théophile Seyrig, a disciple of Gustave Eiffel, it is very similar to Di Maria Bridge, located further upstream.

D. Maria bridge Historical figure, in honor of Maria Pia of Savoy, wife of Louis I, nicknamed “angel of the poor “, is a large railway viaduct. This steel arch bridge, the first railway to link the two shores of the Douro bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel and his partner Théophile Seyrig. Opened in November 1877, it is decommissioned and doubled by a modern book, São João Bridge since 1991.
Here is another famous bridge of the city of Porto. Sao Joao bridge. It was built of white concrete, near the bridge Di Maria so there is a visual contrast between the two. This bridge was designed by Edgar Cardoso and inaugurated in 1991, the day of St. John (São João), hence its name.
