18 25 de Abril Bridge, Lisbon

Looks like San Francisco? It isn't. This is 25 de Abril Bridge in Lisbon, Portugal. But it was so reminiscent of the Golden Gate Bridge that I had to go see it when I didn't quite have the money to travel overseas. It has a total length of 2,277 metres / 7,470 ft and was renamed from Salazar Bridge into 25 de Abril Bridge after the date of the Carnation Revolution that overthrew Salazar's regime.

Actually the 25 de Abril Bridge is painted with the same International Orange color as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Also the design is similar to the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. So no wonder that you will find San Francisco vibes when you visit its "little brother" in Lisbon.
