Die Dom Luis I brug (Portugees: Ponte Dom Luís I) oor die rivier Douro is 'n opvallend konstruksie in die Portugese stad Porto.

Naam

Die brug is vernoem na koning Lodewyk I van Portugal (Dom Luís I, 1861 - 1889), wat die brug dan ook op 31 Oktober 1886 geopen het.

Ontwerp en konstruksie

Sodra mens bewus word daarvan dat die brug ontwerp is deur Teófilo Seyrig, 'n Belgiese medewerker van Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, herken mens ook elemente van die Eiffeltoring daarin. Konstruksie het in 1881 begin en die brug is op 31 Oktober 1886 amptelik geopen.

Verkeer is aanvanklik oor twee brugdekke 44 meter bo mekaar gedra. Die onderste vlak het motorverkeer tussen die laagliggende stadsdele ondersteun en die boonste het die hoogliggende stadsdele met 'n metro-dek verbind. Beide was ontoeganklik vir voetgangers. Elke brugdek word deur staal boog konstruksie ondersteun.

Die ou spoorbrug in Porto, die Maria Pia-brug, is deur Eiffel & Co. ontwerp en hoewel dit ontbreek aan die onderdek is daar duidelike ooreenkomste tussen die twee bûe.

A cidade do Porto é conhecida, dentre outras coisas, pela beleza das pontes que ligam a Invicta à cidade vizinha. E a Ponte D. Luis I é a mais linda delas :)
