I couldn't take a picture of the bridge as it is so long, so I had to resort to taking a video of the ridg to show its incredible length

Quite a journey over this engineering marvel which is soooo long. Worth taking a drive to enjoy the water views and easy to get to as it is very close to the airport.

Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s
mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and
structures that once were the home of all the Expo's
attractions and exhibits are still culturally and
artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll
explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping
center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car
ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the
