Panoramic afternoon view from Vila Nova de Gaia across Rio Douro to the historic centre of Porto on the northern bank of the river. The double-deck steel arch bridge near the right edge of the image dates back to 1886. It carries the metro train on its upper and the road traffic on its lower deck. Both the historic centre of Porto and the bridge have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage in 1996.
