Spectacular modern bridge near our hotel. Was a great shortcut. Great views of the river and city. But take care when its wet.

Signed by a famous architect, this beautiful white bridge gives a note of color to the Bilbao estuary. Very convenient to cross from Nervión 's one side to the other. Very well located, you will see it without a stroll through one of the most beautiful areas of the city, Abandoibarra.

Calatrava's bridge is an elegant link across the river. Should have a glass floor too but glass is slippery and a rubber mat has been placed over. Safety first but in fact it doesn't detract from the overall elegance of the bridge

It looks nice and follows the trend of jazzing-up the image of cities with this fashionable bridges ! Like many other of them, problems with the reality , unpractical details, over-rated, over-priced and Lametta-architecture !My proposal: let's Calatrava pass those bridges at least 10 times a day to have not just another notch in the personal reference-list !

This may have been revolutionary when it was built but it is rather mundane today. I am not sure whether it suffers from heavy use or poor construction or poor design but the material is badly cracking in many locations.

This is a nice way to cross the river, always people around, some couples just stand and hug, it is quite pleasant.

It's typical Calatrava: white, string-y, and dangerous in rainy days, slippery as the floor is made out of glass. The area is beautiful though, and its view from afar away is good.

Zubizuri is marked on the tourist maps and it is worthy of that, being a spectacular addition to the riverscape. It may not be universally liked by architects but it does reflect the resurrection of the declining industrial setting into an attractive place. With steps and ramps from the riverside walkways it is an easy stroll for pedestrians spanning the... More

This suspension bridge by Calatrave provides an elegant crossing point for pedestrians and bicyclists. The deck has some translucent portions, but does not pose too much of a vertiginous experience, even though the suspension seems to be in motion. At night, the bridge is well-lit and provides an intriguing interplay of light and water.
