If this is the footbridge I think it is, it is a wonderful jeu d'ésprit by the engineer who designed it. Not a straight element in it; great fun. To be seen, thought about how it was designed and how it was built. Lovely. Tremendous fun.

One of the most beautiful bridges in Bilbao, but that is easy because Santiago Calatrava designed it. It is unmistakebly Calatrava (just like the airport).

After Calatrava's astonishing Alamillo Bridge in Seville, this was very disappointing. The shape isn't clear against the background (and even if it was it wouldn't be all that exciting), the vibrations when you're standing on it produce an unpleasant tightening of the stomach, and it's competing for attention with various other pieces nearby (especially the Guggenheim, of course, but also "Maman", etc). Admittedly I saw it on a grey, overcast afternoon, and it may look better on a sunlit day, seen against a deep blue sky, but I'm not sure. I wouldn't recommend travelling any great distance to see it anyway.

The "White Bridge" is a typical work of Calatrava. Its worthwhile to pay a visit, however it also confirms my assumptions. Calatrava is a very ingenious architect, however nearly all of his works suffer from bad detail engineering. This bridge is very nice, but the idea of using glass for the walkway turned out to be a complete no-go. After a lot of accidents due the glass surface becoming slippery in rain, the walkway was covered with carpets simulating grass. In the first periode of time this was a good solution, however later the surface become ondulated and now users stumble over this ondulations.
So be beware!

Were recommended to travel over the bridge by a tourism guide who included it in a circular walk along the river starting at the nearby museum. Great photo opportunity from centre looking back down the river and ideal place to cross for access to famous old town area..
