    The bridge closed to cars and heavy vehicles in November 2007 for repairs to it's pillars. It’s due to re-open in mid 2009.

    You can still cross the bridge on foot or bike or take the train from Parchal to Portimão’s station (less than 3 mins). You can then catch the Violet-colour hopper-bus which will take you to the centre of Portimão (Alameda and Largo do Dique) in next to no time!

    There is talk of a potential river crossing via ferryboat...

    Excellent idea to spend Winter in Ferragudo !
    [Temperatures in the next few days will hit 18C & sunny! ]
