Ponte Eiffel

Viana do Castelo
Description
It was inaugurated the 30th of June of 1878, in the time of the iron architecture. Designed by the famous Eiffel House, the metallic bridge over the “Rio Lima” allowed the railway traffic but it also replaced the old wood bridge that linked the S. Bento place in Viana to the left bank of the “Rio Lima”(Darque). With 563 meters long and 6 meter large, 2 000 000 kilos of iron had been required for the construction of the platforms that lay on nine granite squared stone pillars, whose substructures reach the 22 meters.
