Avenida da Ponte (Bridge Avenue) was built in the mid-20th century, under the design of José Marques da Silva (1869-1947) and was intended as a means of connecting the upper level of the Luiz I Bridge with the São Bento (St. Benedict) train station, cutting through original medieval urban space. During the second half of the 20th century several projects were proposed to complete the avenue, as shown by the granite escarpment on one side, which remains a scar on the city landscape.
