Photographer's Note

Photo taken from Vila Nova de Gaia.

Arrabida Bridge, which contains a 270m span, set the world record for concrete bridges for some time. The arch is 52m tall and the plate rises up to 70m above water level. The construction lasted from May 1957 to 22 July 1963, day of its opening.
Closer, one of the traditional Rabelo Boats which once carried the barrels of Port Wine along the River Douro, nowadays some of them offer tourists and the inhabitants of Oporto daily cruises of one hour between the river's banks and bridges.
