New tourist experience inspired by 25 April Bridge unveiled in Lisbon

A new tourist attraction inspired by Lisbon’s 25 April Bridge was unveiled to the public on Tuesday this week.

Plans for a €4.3 million ‘interpretational centre’ based on the bridge was unveiled near its pillar in Alcântara.
Described as a touristic and cultural project, Lisbon council said the centre will include a panoramic viewpoint and offer a sensory, physical and intellectual experience.

Construction of the centre is due to start as soon as a developer is found via public tender, and is hoped to be completed by 6 August next year, in time for the iconic bridge’s landmark 50th anniversary.
Tickets to the Pillar 7 Experience centre will cost around €7 per person.
