  • Address: Av.Marginal Pinheiros, SÃO PAULO, Brazil
  • Latitude: -23.6128
  • Longitude: -46.6992

Octávio Frias de Oliveira bridge is 138 metres (450 ft) tall, and connects Marginal Pinheiros to Jornalista Roberto Marinho Avenue.

Octávio Frias de Oliveira, Sao Paolo - Brazil

The bridge deck is unusual due to its form, which is similar to an “X”, crossing at the tower. Height-wise, if you were standing on the 46th floor of a building, you would be level with its highest point. It is also the only bridge in the world that has two curved tracks supported by a single concrete mast.

At the end of December lights are put up on the cables and illuminated to create color effects like those on a Christmas tree. The bridge is also lit up on special occasions during the year and is often used for automobile advertisements on television.
