Ponte sobre a Ribeira da Carpinteira

The footbridge over the river of a Carpenter, opened in 2009, is the work of architect Carrilho Grace. Is one of the tallest in Portugal, with 52 meters high and 220 meters long. It was built with the main objective to bring the city's residential neighborhoods that make up the urban core, as well as promoting mobility, thus avoiding the need to use public transport.
Covilhã was distinguished by the magazine Travel & Leisure in January 2011, as one of the seven most interesting destinations in the world in terms of design due to this work of architecture.
