Bridge of the 25th April and Jesus Christ, Lisbon

This incredible bridge over the Taag River is more than 2km long. It was named after the revolution of 25th of April in 1974 which ended the military regime in Portugal. The bridge is enormous and we took pictures from all angles from the city side bank. It was too difficult to get on the bridge itself so we continued our walk toward the Belem castle. Later we also took some pictures right underneath the bridge when the cruise ship sailed by.

Underneath there is a small port with recreational vessels and restaurants. Looking at the other bank we see the high statue of Jesus Christ. A similar monument as in Rio de Janeiro. Lisbon is a fascinating city.

Deze ongelooflijke brug over de Taag rivier is meer dan 2km lang. Ze werd genaamd naar de 25ste april 1974 revolutie die een einde maakte aan het militaire regime in Portugal. De brug is enorm en we namen foto’s uit alle oogpunten van op de oever aan de stadszijde. Het was te moeilijk om te voet op de brug te geraken dus vervolgden we onze wandeling naar het kasteel van Belem. Later namen we nog enkele foto’s recht onder de brug van op het cruise schip tijdens de doorvaart. 

Een kleine haven huist enkele recreatieve bootjes en vele restaurants. Aan de andere oever van de Taag zien we het hoge standbeeld van Jezus. Een gelijkaardig monument als in Rio de Janeiro. Lisabon is een fascinerende stad.
