I was not sure about the visit when the Informaction tourist officer give me this piece of advice. I thank her! This red metallic Bridge it's a masterpiece. Declared UNESCO Heritage Site.Built in 1893 by the Architect Alberto de Palacio, it is the oldest river crossing bridge. A sort of "shuttle" is hanging on transporting cars, bikes and people from...

The charge for walking across the top level is a bit steep at 7 euros, but, wow, it is just incredible up there. We spent ages walking back and forth, snapping photos. Really fantastic views. And it is so cool when the car is moving, you can feel it, hear it, see it, thrilling. Do it. The cost includes a... More

A pleasant surprise and a way of getting from one side of a river to the other in a way you won't have seen before. The bridge represents the areas industrial past & heritage. On the east side it is complimented by a small well presented garden area with cafe. There has been a lot of investment in this stretch... More

This is the first suspension bridge in the world, or pendent ferry, becouse people and vehicles entering in the cabin, which is pendent on the cables transferred to the other side of the river. It is posible to cross the bridge on the walk, using elevator, but cost 7€. Using the cabin cost only 35 cents pro person..

Great value - cross a world heritage designation bridge for less than a Euro or walk over the high gantry via the lift for seven euro. See the old town at portugalete then stroll over to the beach at Getcho. A day that will be remembered for a long time.

This transporter bridge is of historical interest and well worth a trip across the river. it's only 35cents and if you engage with local people they are very proud to tell you all about it .We weren't sure how to buy the ticket from the machine and about five people offered to help us. I can't think of many large... More

This century old bridge is always fun to watch and travel on (by foot, bicycle or car). You will have to travel far to find one like it.

We visited here previously a few years ago and were here again in September with friends so we visited the bridge again. The view from the top alone is a good reason to go. We hadn't realised on our last visit that your ticket also entitles you to a free return trip in the gondola across the river. We decided... More

This world heritage site comes at the end of the Bilboat cruise but those with an interest in engineering may like to take a better look and even a ride. Said to be only seven such bridges left in the world, this is said to be the first of its kind. Certainly not something that we are ever likely to... More

This bridge was pretty cool. At first I didn't get what the fuss was about, and I think my husband thought I'd gone blind, but then I realized that the reason it is cool, is because it's kind of a hanging car that brings people across instead of the typical bridge that you physically walk or drive across. The fare... More
