Portugal is set to open the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge later this month.

Measuring 516 metres, it has a sheer drop into the river and cliffs below while connecting a waterfall and the Paiva Gorge. The bridge is called the 516 Arouca, and is located just outside Porto. It is estimated that the walk across takes between 5 to 10 minutes. While there is no official date for its opening, it is expected to be ready for the public by the end of this month.
