a walking bridge was interesting to us and the view from and above the bridge is really fascinating, if you are with small children it could be a little boring for them

Walked this bridge several times - to Gaia for port of course. And the views of Porto! There are 2 levels so you don't have to climb up the hill if you are down in the Ribeira.

Bridge is pretty average, but the area is interesting. Cable car, park, hill above bridge, river are nice views. There is a cable car down on one side and up on the other. Pleasant place to go walking.

A walk across this bridge give you great views back to the Ribeiria side of the river and is an ideal place to take photos. If you don't mind heights you can walk across the top.Some will tell you that Eiffel was the architect but...More

This place gives you perfect view of Gaia, the Duoro and Porto all in one go, and the bonus is that it is free. It has two levels - the bottom level is pointless if you want a panorama, but the top level allows you...More

I would not worry about it! The bridge is quite wide so if you get nervous, you can walk in the middle of the track and not be forced to look down. I have some height issues but no worries for me here. Give it a try. You... More
