Pilar 7 - Bridge Experience
Lisbon’s new attraction, Pilar 7 – Bridge Experience – continues to astonish its visitors since it opened in 2017.
Located in Avenida da Índia, this new attraction features a panoramic viewpoint on the bridge’s deck level and a virtual reality experience inside its pillar.
Climbing to a platform it allows the visitor to be surrounded by the blue waters of the Tagus River and as one emerges from these virtual waters, and reaches the top you can feel, hear and see the train that crosses both margins as it approaches.
Recently awarded “Best Public Project” in the category of Engineering by “Prémios Construir”, this is a unique experience not to miss.
Onboard an amphibious vehicle, one can explore the heart of the Portuguese capital, by land and by the river, without leaving the comfort of your own seat. Is it a bus? Is it a boat? Well, it’s both…. so get ready to plunge into the Tagus River with a big smile on your face!
Another “son” born out of EXPO´98 was the Oceanário de Lisboa, a large public aquarium whose prestige is widely recognized, not only in Lisbon and in Portugal but also across the world and has reinforced the ancient bond between Lisbon and the ocean.
