13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
25th of April not Golden Gate

Lisbon is beautiful. It means home, it is where I was born. Everytime I would go surf, I would cross this bridge back and then forth and the view is incredible over the Tagus river, the sea entrance and the city of Lisbon. The 25th of April bridge was inaugurated in 1966 and is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Nevertheless it was built by the American Bridge Company that built the San Francisco – Oakland Bridge but not the Golden Gate.
