1512 : Copy Cats

25 APRIL BRIDGE AND STATUE OF CHRIST THE KING, LISBON, PORTUGAL

As you leave Lisbon harbour you pass under the magnificent 25 April Bridge. It was built by the same company that constructed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and is very similar in many ways. Next to it is the statue of Christ The King, which was modelled on the statue of Christ The Redeemer in Rio. All they need is a copy of Big Ben to balance it on the other side of the bridge and they will have a full set.
