Visited on May 1, 2017, at approximately 4:00 p.m.

Lisbon is a port city, and its famous bridge is the 25th of April Bridge. If you’ve ever been to Lisbon, you must have seen it at least once. You can see it when you go to Belém district.

However, it is easier to appreciate this bridge if you view it from Armada, a city on the other side of Lisbon.

There is a square just where the statue of Cristo Rey (inspired by Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this is not the original) towers, and it is best to view it from there. It was a national holiday and the weather was fine, so it was crowded with many tourists.

In addition, when we came here, of course we passed this April 25 bridge by car. It’s fun too! I took a video, so I’ll post that too.
