  • The Arrábida Bridge, designed by Edgar Cardoso and with a span of 270 m, was, for some time, the longest reinforced concrete bridge span in the world. Inaugurated in 1963, it sits 70 meters above the average water level. Bronze sculptures sit on top of the four great pillars that support the central span, adding to the bridge's innovative spirit and modernist style. The A1 motorway runs over this bridge, connecting Campo Alegre, on the Porto side, to Arrábida on the Vila Nova de Gaia side. Work designated national monument.
