The Dom Luis Bridge - and aren't you glad these aren't your kids!

Oporto's iconic bridge opened in 1886, when it held the record for the longest iron arch in the world (380 meters) . Designed by Théophile Seyrig,  a protege of Gustave Eiffel, the upper level is now used by a metro line. We walked across the river from the center of Oporto to the port wine warehouses (our visit to Taylor's) of the municipality of Vila Nova de Gaia.

Now a days the bridge is used by teenagers to try to be cool, literally and figuratively;

I am glad this isn't Phil.

Does this remind you of a Tower in Paris?
