(Ponte 25 de Abril) is a suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, to the municipality of Almada on the left bank of the Tagus river. <br />
It was inaugurated on August 6, 1966 and a train platform was added in 1999. <br />
It is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, USA. (The same company constructed both bridges.) With a total length of 2,277 m, it is the 20th largest suspension bridge in the world. <br />
The upper platform carries six car lanes, the lower platform two train tracks. <br />
Until 1974, the bridge was named Salazar Bridge.<br />
