Starting Friday, June 24th the adventurous have a challenge in Porto: to visit the arch of Ponte da Arrábida – that connects Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. This will be the first time since 1963 that this bridge is going to be open to the public, and the day was not chosen randomly: this Friday the city celebrates São João (Saint John) one of its biggest and popular parties.
The first plan was to turn on the Arrábida elevators but, due to the high cost, the idea of a tour came up. The 20 minutes-tour is available for people with 16 to 79 years old and involves climbing 262 steps. But don’t worry about falling! The tour has security measures like a Handrail, Lifeline, and a Harness.
In the pre-opening period – until July 8th – the guided tour costs nine euros can host groups up to 14 visitors.
