The bridge appears from the top in a beautiful and impressive way, being different from the rest of the bridges, especially the surrounding nature is very impressive. This famous bridge was built along the coast, located in a blue sea lake, with a magnificent view of the sea. The choice of this location is also intended to reduce the driver's speed so that he can enjoy the wonderful scenery here.
