The Luis 1st Bridge is a metal arch bridge that spans the Douro River between the cities of Porto and Vila Nova
de Gaia in Portugal. At the time of construction its span of 172 m was the longest of its type in the world.
The Government held a competition for the construction of a metallic bridge over Douro River on a site that
was near to an existing bridge and would replace it. Teofilo Seyrig had already engineered the D. Maria Pia
Bridge project nearby, whilst working as a partner of Eiffel. He now took sole responsibility for the new, major
Luis first bridge. The construction was begun in 1881 and the bridge opened on 31 October 1886.
