April 25 Bridge
This bridge located in between the districts of Almada and Belem on the River Tejo strongly resembles the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA. Despite the similar orange coloring as the one in San Francisco, this span was created by the company that created the Oakland Bay Bridge. The bridge was inaugurated in 1966 and was initially named Ponte Salazar after the authoritarian prime-minister who ruled until 1974. Thereafter the bridge was renamed Ponte 25 de Abril as a result of the coup d'etat and the culmination of the Carnation Revolution within the country.
