The Basics

The Pillar 7 Bridge Experience takes visitors on a trip through the history of the bridge’s construction. It includes a walk-through multimedia tour of the span, including the impressive twin rooms where the main moorings of the support cables are visible. The tour ends with an elevator ride up to a panoramic viewing point on the 26th floor, which offers excellent views of the city and the River Tagus. There is also an immersive, virtual reality experience of the inaccessible parts of the bridge (separate ticket required).
