A third of a mile long and suspended 570 feet above a foaming river, the longest suspension footbridge in the world is about to open in Portugal – and it’s not for the faint-hearted.
Named 516 Arouca (after its length in metres and the local district), the new bridge crosses a canyon on the outskirts of Porto. It takes between five and ten minutes to walk across the narrow walkway – which, by the way, is see-through. You’ll get incredible views of the River Paiva directly below your feet, as well as spectacular countryside for miles around.
