    World’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge

If you’re afraid of heights, a visit to this bridge will likely remain off your bucket list.

Now officially the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge, 516 metre long bridge is now open but it’s not for the faint-hearted.

The bridge, which is known as 516 Arouca, drapes 175 metres above River Paiva in northern Portugal. The bridge itself is hidden between mountains inside the UNESCO-recognised Arouca Geopark.

The bridge is located over an hour from Porto, and connects Aguieiras Waterfall and Paiva Gorge.

The bridge is built using steel cables and a metal-grid base, which lets you feel like you are walking on nothing along with a view of the River Paiva below.
