Alcântara is a civil parish of the city and municipality of Lisbon. Its name is derived from the Arabic (القنطارة), meaning the bridge. Ponte 25 de Abril bridge leaves land to soar over the Tagus. The bridge is the sister to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, USA. On the other side of the highway and train tracks is the rest of this neighborhood, with residential blocks surrounding the new LX Factory. A little further away is Alto de Santo Amaro, one of the most beautiful residential areas of Lisbon, with friendly streets and sites easy to discover.
