It is a well constructed and colorful bridge. Crossing it was an above average bridge crossing-experience. While walking through Girona it is certainly worth crossing it to get over the river, though note there are less-colorful alternatives available from other engineers.

If you go to Girona you will have to pass by many times as it's situated in the center of the busy city and it's nice to know that it was done by the same person who did the Eiffel Tower in París.

It is one of the bridges that connect old city of Girona with the modern city. It gives a clue of colour between the buildings as it is full in red colour. As material they used steel, just like eiffel tower. It is a nice choice to visit it!

A group of us were visiting Girona, a city north of Barcelona. We discovered the Pont de les Peixateries Velle, a landmark bridge constructed by Eiffel. The bridge spans the Onyar River which flows through the city and connects one sides with the other. The bridge is brightly colored and affords splendid views of the city's riverbanks and old buildings... More

Beautiful, photogenic, nice views,... It's the main and most beautiful landmark in Girona. Should be there when you go.

Why all the locks on the bridge? Was there last night and noticed about 2-300 locks left on the bridge. Did I see something recently about a bridge in Venice (or Bruges?) where weight if locks was causing bridge to collapse?

I must admit I did make a special crossing of the bridge because I liked the look of it. It goes up in estimation as it was designed by GE, but, sadly, it's just another bridge.

Gustave Eiffel designed this red girder pedestrian bridge in Girona. Although it doesn't have the same grandeur as the famous tower, it's easy to see the connection between the two structures.
