This is an decorative bridge across the river in Girona. It was designed by the designer for the eiffel tower in Paris. The most unique thing I found about it was its' brilliant red color! In an old, historic walled city, this was very unique.

The Onyar River is particularly attractive with colourful houses that run along the length of the river in central Girona and to complete the spectacle is the Eiffel Bridge which does not look out of place given its surroundings. It was constructed by Gustave Eiffel before the Eiffel Tower was erected in Paris.

Beautifull sight. Perfect if you have time and ideal when you travel with Ryanair directly to Girona airport. In the evening it is perfect

Take the time to stroll across, maybe best in the evening as the bridge is lit in a way that enhances its design. Eiffel, working at the same time and spirit of Gaudi and the Catalan Modernists, created a wonderful segue from the ancient city to the 19th century one. Spend some time really looking and you will find it's... More

Honestly... I think it looks like something he was experimenting with for a pedestrian barricade at a railway station. Nice shade of red, but I think his towers were his best work.

Worth using as it makes crossing the river easier, not worth a massive diversion. Nice to see and views are good. Some nice ironwork and can see the influence for/from the tower.

One of the three main pedestrian bridges across the river in Girona. The other two have a nicer view and are better for talking photos but this is nice enough too, nonetheless.

My 2 puppies & I walk along this bridge every day on our daily walk. The view is lovely especially as it is on a slight bend in the river so you get a fantastic view. I wonder if the architect who built it was practicing for the Eiffel Tower???

this bridge is only of interest because of the builder.quite ugly and unimpressive I think eifel should of concentrated on towers.after our initial interest we passed over this bridge many times without giving it another thought.
