Do walk across it if you can, it looks really cool at night all lit up. But it is just a pedestrian bridge at the end of the day.

It's different, it's sexy. Very photogenic. The deck might have been originally made of glass, but the decision to carpet it adds to the sexiness of it. Walking on weary feet feels so welcoming! I would cross this bridge several times in my 3-day stay, and I took photos of it during different times of the day. Thoroughly recommended!

Santiago Calatrava is a great modern architect. The bridge is not so well maintained but fascinating. It is also famous for its slippery. It is very near the Guggenheim museum.

If this is the footbridge I think it is, it is a wonderful jeu d'ésprit by the engineer who designed it. Not a straight element in it; great fun. To be seen, thought about how it was designed and how it was built. Lovely. Tremendous fun.

One of the most beautiful bridges in Bilbao, but that is easy because Santiago Calatrava designed it. It is unmistakebly Calatrava (just like the airport).

After Calatrava's astonishing Alamillo Bridge in Seville, this was very disappointing. The shape isn't clear against the background (and even if it was it wouldn't be all that exciting), the vibrations when you're standing on it produce an unpleasant tightening of the stomach, and it's competing for attention with various other pieces nearby (especially the Guggenheim, of course, but also...

The "White Bridge" is a typical work of Calatrava. Its worthwhile to pay a visit, however it also confirms my assumptions. Calatrava is a very ingenious architect, however nearly all of his works suffer from bad detail engineering. This bridge is very nice, but the idea of using glass for the walkway turned out to be a complete no-go. After... More

Were recommended to travel over the bridge by a tourism guide who included it in a circular walk along the river starting at the nearby museum. Great photo opportunity from centre looking back down the river and ideal place to cross for access to famous old town area..

From whatever angle you look at this bridge there is something to admire. Take a look for yourself and see if you agree with me.

The bridge serves as a practical srructure in a city that is so walkable and as an attractive architectural statement against the beautiful architecture backdrop of Bilbao. The bridge is hard to miss if you spend even a few hours visiting the city
