★★★★✮

Dom Luís I Bridge, this other iconic sight of the Porto city is a metal structure bridge that was built between 1881-1888 and projected by the Belgian engineer Théophile Seyrig.
If you want to take fantastic photos of the riverside area, go to the upper deck of the bridge, which, although used by the metro, has a passageway for those that want to enjoy the views.
