This twin-level metal arc bridge, a prominent industrial landmark for Porto, was built in 1886. Théophile Seyrig, a German engineer and cofounder of the Eiffel Company, came up with the idea. The nearly 45-meter-high bridge spans the Douro's stony, steep banks. From the top level, you can see the Cais da Ribeira, which is where the light train of Porto stops. Then, to descend to the water's edge, you may board the Funicular dos Guindais. If you've still not seen enough, you can cross on the lower deck to avoid hitting any oncoming pedestrians or local cars.
