How fantastic - you can walk safely right over the bridge in between the traffic lanes. Pity about the graffiti, nut nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed it. Quite beautiful.
Santiago Calatrava is one of Spain's best known architects and he is famous for his bridges. This bridge is one of his better designs and it was finished in 1992 for the Expo of that year. The bridge has one huge pillar that is leaning to one side, which is quite unusual.
The Alamillo Bridge has a very unusual shape that is not symmetrical. It looks like it is cantileveled. It was built for the Expo92 as a symbol of the city of Seville. This is one of Santiago Calatrava's best designs.
Impressive Calatrava's asimmetric bridge dominating the northern - western part of Seville. You can profit your visit to croos Guadalquivir river to pay a visit to Italica - the remains of ancient Betica roman province capital.
Not only breathtaking for the concept, but also very, very beautiful - as beautiful, to my mind, as any of the better-known old architectural marvels of Seville. You have to go a kilometre or down the Guadalquivir from the centre of town, but it's worth it. Not to be missed on any account.
