The 1,692-foot Arouca 516 Bridge has now opened to the public, with its metal walkway suspended from cables 574-feet above the Paiva River. Previously, the world’s longest suspension bridge for pedestrians title was held by the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge that spans 1,621-feet, followed by Japan’s Kokonoe Yume Bridge, which measures 1,280-feet. Arouca 516 cost $2.8-million to build and admission costs between $12-$14 accompanied by a guide. Read more for two videos and additional information.
The stunning bridge itself is located in the Arouca Geopark, an area in the northern region of Portugal where visitors can also go hiking, white water rafting or just exploring historical sites. Arouca is considered a Unesco Global Geopark for its significant geological characteristics, including rock formations that hold clues to the merging of supercontinent Gondwana and other landmasses to form Pangaea around hundreds of million years ago.
