Portugal pedestrian bridge

This item appears on page 31 of the November 2021 issue.

The world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge, called 516 Arouca, opened in Arouca Geopark in northern Portugal on April 30. The 516-meter-long span (1,693 feet) is suspended between two concrete pillars 175 meters (574 feet) above the Paiva River and near the Aguieiras Waterfall. The bridge is not a rigid structure but sags in the middle.
