{HUGO XAVIER, AROUCA LOCAL RESIDENT} "I confess I was a little afraid, but it was worth it because it is extraordinary, a unique experience and one that I highly recommend. It is indeed an incredible adrenaline rush, to be there so high, to feel the bridge shaking a little, to look down and see the running river. It's incredible."
