Portugal Vasco da Gama Bridge, Lisbon

The Vasco da Gama Bridge over the Tagus River in Lisbon is the second longest bridge in Europe. Every time it's different and magic to photograph this stunning piece of architecture.

Photography Tips

Possibly best done on a weekday morning. I was there on a Friday morning and a Saturday morning - on Friday I had the place to myself but on Saturday there were about 10 other photographers and lots more dog walkers and joggers. That isn't to say that sharing a space with other people is a bad thing, but, for this particular location, the walkway vibrates slightly as people walk by, and for long exposures, this can result in a slightly soft image. You can choose to go down to the rocky shore below where the ground is more stable, but the better compositions (not to mention more comfortable places to stand) are on the wooden promenade deck.

As Pedro Filipe mentioned, this place is different each time you visit depending on how the light interacts with the clouds. I went three times in two days - sunrise, sunset, then another sunrise, and got quite different results each time.

Travel Information

Easy to get to this spot by bus from Oriente station. Lots of parking available.

Walking time from Moscavide metro station is about 25 minutes and not a particularly nice walk, so perhaps take a bus or cab from the station unless you have time to spare.

You can get an Uber to drop you off about 5 minutes from this spot and it's easy to get one to go back towards the city.
Spot Type Outdoor
Crowd Factor Just a few people
Best Timing Sunrise
Sunrise & Sunset 06:21 - 21:02 | current local time: 05:44

The location marker is in the wrong place, it should be on land looking towards the bridge.

@Alona Azaria, are you commenting that picture as it is from Pedro?
Alona Azaria
Alona Azaria 17.09.2018
Dear Emanuel, unfortunately the system here is that if you "add" a photo, rather than create a new spot, the person who posted first gets the story and the coordinates and your story goes to the bin. I meant Pedro, but having said that, your photo is stunning just as well!!! I wish I could say its mine :-) if any of you is giving workshops in Lisbon, let me know.

Dear Alorna, thank you again for the comments. I am new in the Photography Hobby, so i'm not feeling confident enough to give workshops, but if you ever come to Lisbon just let me know. If im available i will be glad to show you some spots....( bring your tripod and filters btw)....And as for Emanuel my apologies for the inconvenience, but i have just logged today and im still figure how this works. Regards.

Thanks Pedro, that would be great! I am interested in two spots n.l. the bridge from Passeio de Tejo and the MAAT. Can you get in touch with me through [email protected] because I don't have your email? unfortunately there is no messenger here. Thanks again, guys!

Looking at your photographs. Seems wide angle shots predominate. Do you ever try longer lenses? Do you help visitors find morning or evening photographic sites?

Hope you had a great time in Portugal Gee with lots of nice experiences. I haven't been there since I was a child, so I guess I definitely need to come back to this country, right?
