Love this bridge, I don't like heights and this didn't bother me. Very modern and fun to walk over to the other side of the river.

Great aesthetics but I don't think Calatrava, this world-wide famous architect, will be doing anything more in Bilbao, ever! Both his bridge and his airport were a fiasco in therms of usability...

We walked over this bridge several times during our stay in Bilbao. Weither it be walking to the guggenheim museum or just to do some shopping we always found ourselves crossing here. The modern design is provoking to the senses while its cool design fits perfectly in this artsy city.

Sounds daft to say that, but it is there in your face tempting you after you have walked past the Guggenheim museum. Striking archetecture

Its worthwhile to pay a visit to this bridge, it is very nice. Access ramps and stairways are located on both banks and it offers pedestrians a convenient route from hotels to the nearby Bilbao Guggenheim Museum. The bridge is designed by architect Santiago Calatrava opened in 1997.

The bridge looks lovely and is in keeping with the modernist feel to Bilbao's architecture. I gather that the surface was initially of glass but so many people slipped and fell in wet weather that they carpeted over the glass at a cost almost equal to the original commission!

We parked high up in a residential area of Bilbao and walked down. Whilst walking along the river we crossed this bridge which I thought was very pleasant. We have a few similar to this in the UK. A nice quirky piece of architecture in a great location.

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.
