The longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world – the Paiva 516!
It’s almost ready to open to public!
The official council office ensures this one is the LONGEST PEDESTRIAN SUSPENSION BRIDGE IN THE WHOLE WORLD!
It is a big title to promote it. And it seems to be true!
The brand new Paiva Walkways Suspension Bridge spans 516 meters across the valley passing just right above the waterfall. We are very happy to announce that we`ll have another great attraction to be part of our amazing tour! Will you dare? 🙂
The construction started roughly two years ago and its almost ready for inauguration. The structure was assembled by a team of mountain climbers and it is supposed to be inaugurated by the end of June 2020.
The walking deck with it`s 1,20 meters wide hangs 175 meters above the Paiva River!
It costed around 2 million euros and, besides trying to attract and pump up the name of the Arouca Geopark and the Paiva Walkways – bringing more visitors and helping the small businesses of this countryside rural area – the suspension bridge its gonna connect some of the long and short distance hiking trails already existing at the Freita mountains.
