Yesterday, ferryboats had return to Belém!
Lisbon had ferrys conecting Belém and Porto Brandão between 1959 and 1977 and, since then, I'm not sure, but I think no ferry has return there.
Since yesterday, and due to works at the Cais do Sodré Terminal, the route Cais do Sodré-Cacilhas has been changed to Belém, now directly conected to Cacilhas.
Of three routs made by ferryboats in early 70´s, Belém - Porto Brandão, Cais do Sodré - Cacilhas and Cais do Sodré - Montijo, only the second one remains.
