Guias Viagem


Apartment in Alcântara.

 



Rua 1 de Mayo in Alcântara, right underneath the gigantic road and rail bridge across the Duero, now named the Ponte 25 de Abril in commemoration of the 1974 Carnation Revolution (originally the Ponte Salazar).

The name "Alcântara" means "the bridge" in Arabic... referring to a former Roman bridge on this site.
