The Arouca Geopark is a popular tourist spot in Arouca, Portugal. It is well known for its extreme sports activities.
Now, it is home to the ‘frighteningly beautiful’ world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge.
A suspension bridge has large main cables (usually two) suspended between towers.
This record-breaking bridge is called the 516 Arouca. It is called so because it’s 516 metres long and is in Arouca. The bridge took about two years to build.
It usually takes 10 minutes to cross the bridge if you are walking at an average pace. From the bridge, you can see a waterfall and river below.
Before this, the longest pedestrian suspension bridge was the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge in Switzerland.
