Circular Pedestrian Bridge, also known as Ponte do Laço[1] is a pedestrian steel bridge above the Canal de São Roque and the Canal dos Botirões, two of the channels of the Aveiro Lagoon.[1] Designed by Luís Viegas and Domingos Moreira,[2] the bridge features an "unusual" circular design that is supported in three margins and suspended by a mast.[3] It opened to the public in May 2006.[4]
