Crossing the Tagus
This is a small part of the Vasco da Gama bridge across the River Tagus at Lisbon. It takes around fifteen minutes to cross the bridge, which spans the river at what may be its widest part.
It is the largest bridge in Europe with a length of 17.2 km (10 miles), 10 km of which are over the Tagus river. It was inaugurated on the 4th of April 1998, five centuries after the arrival of Vasco da Gama to India.
The bridge was designed to withstand an earthquake four times greater than the 1755 earthquake that devastated Lisbon.
