Porto Dom Luis Bridge Portugal
Luís I Bridge, Pte. Luiz I, 4000 Porto, Portugal


Dr VT and I took these photos in March 2019, hence the weather in Portugal was cold. I was literally freezing when we took these photos. It was even much colder when we went over to the Light House during sunset. As you can see in the last few pictures, I had to wear VT's jacket. We were both freezing as the sea winds and waves were really strong that day. I was wearing winter boots throughout the whole photoshoot. It was way too cold to be wearing any nice high heels, etc. It was really fun and memorable. We had an awesome time here in Porto.


This bridge is the most significant bridge in Porto. The Dom Luís I Bridge (Portuguese: Ponte de Dom Luís I), or Luís I Bridge, is a double-deck metal arch bridge that spans the River Douro between the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia in Portugal. 

At its construction, its 172 metres (564 ft) span was the longest of its type in the world. It has been confused with the nearby Maria Pia Bridge, a railway bridge that was built 9 years earlier (and located 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the east), that is similar in aspect to the Luís I bridge.


Two decks of varying lengths: 172 metres (564 ft) (lower deck) and 395.25 metres (1,296.8 ft).


The bridge is situated in an isolated, urban area over the River Douro between the granite banks, where the Cathedral of Porto and the escarpment of the Serra do Pilar, forming a box valley. It is 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the bridge of D. Maria Pia and, farther along, the Arrábida Bridge. 


On the Porto side, the lower deck connects the Cais da Ribeira and the upper Avenida Vímara Peres, while the bank of Vila Nova de Gaia to the Avenida Diogo Leite and Avenida da República, respectively. Access to the Porto side is located along the Pillars of Ponte Pênsil, while the Guindais Funicular, the Church and Shelter of Ferro, the Fernandina Walls and the Monastery of Serra do Pilar.


The iron bridge has two decks, of differing heights and widths, between which develop a large 172.5 metres (566 ft) diameter, central arch supporting these upper and lower decks. Both decks are moored to the riverbanks by means of masonry piers.



Those in the upper deck, are rectangular with a trimmed cornice finish, consisting of two staggered registers separated by cornice and interlacing struts. The lower deck is based on large foundations supporting molded cornices and wedges linked together by a felled arch, and framed by interlacing beams.


At the base of the arches, facing the riverbanks, are large marble plaques with inscriptions "PONTE LUIZ I", and on the upstream face are stones representing royal coat-of-arms, with a shield framed by garlands.


At the base of the lower deck, are iron-pillared, pyramidal-truncated pillars, erected in three sections, that attach to the upper deck.


The bridge has an asphalt pavement for vehicular traffic, separated by cast iron guards, that limit the pedestrian sidewalks, that develop laterally. 


The upper deck, also paved in asphalt and flanked by pedestrian walkways in stonework protected with cast iron guards (similar to the lower deck). From this deck are lamps used for illumination, confronting and connected, forming decorative circles at the angles. Under the guard is cut-out-like lambrequin decorated with phytomorphic elements.


In 1879, Gustave Eiffel presented a project to construct a new bridge over the Douro, with a single deck in order to facilitate navigation. This project was rejected due to dramatic growth of the urban population, which required a re-thinking of the limits of a single-deck platform.


How many bridges are in Porto?
six bridges
Get to know the six bridges of Porto that connect the cities of Porto and Gaia on the Douro River. More than serving as a link between the two cities, the six bridges of Porto are unforgettable landmarks of the city's history, being works full of stories and curiosities.


This bridge has 2 levels. This picture was taken on the lower deck, and you can see that it is a very busy road. There are lots of cars and pedestrians crossing this Douro River everyday. We were pretty lucky to get a good photo shoot of this place. 



The Porto Luis Bridge in the Night Fall





This photo was taken on the TOP level of the Porto Luis Bridge. It was around 10pm, hence, there were very little cars, and we managed to take a photo in the middle of the road. There were train tracks too. But I didn't see any tram on it. We had to climb like at least 100 steps to get from the bottom of the Bridge to the top of the bridge for this picture. It was a pretty good exercise after our dinner with our photographer. 


Porto City Residential Area


Around Porto Luis Bridge area, there are quite a number of houses. You can see people hanging their laundry and what nots. I think that they are really lucky to be able to stay near the Bridge, as I think the Luis Bridge area is like their Orchard Road. Seems like, it is one of their most happening place to hang out at. 





Some quiet lanes in between these residential houses near Porto Luis Bridge. 




Along the Douro River




You can see many little boats and water restaurants, parked along the river side. The streets along the river are pack with tourists.
