Arouca 516: the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world is the newest attraction in Portugal

The 516m long bridge is suspended 175m above the river in Arouca UNESCO Global Geopark on the outskirts of Porto, and its length makes it the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world. The record was previously held by the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge in Switzerland. The bridge connects the Aguieiras waterfall escarpment and the Paiva gorge area, two of the 41 geosites of the Arouca Geopark.
