“An bridge of design....An shop of glass design”
Review of Eiffel Bridge

Walking across the Eiffel's red bridge from Rambla de la Llibertat, admiring the beautiful dance of coloured reflections in the river below the Onyar houses, a beautiful selection of glass items come into view in a shop window just at the end of the steps. This shop is called nou taller de vidre, which means nou glass workshop in Catalan, is an amazing creative space dedicated to local crafts specialising in glass making.

Girona is a magical and culturally rich place, a joy to spend time in especially after the busy experience of Barcelona. Everything in nou taller de vidre is individually made by local artists creating original, unique pieces from contemporary jewelery, glassware, and glass pictures to a selection of textile items too. You even have the opportunity to see the two artists at work, melting the crystal glass with the torch,which is amazing to see.

A great place to buy a true hand-crafted souvenir, a memory of this creatively inspiring place. It is definately worth the visit!!

Of all of the bridges in town this is one of the smallest and one which has the worst views. In my view this is not one of Mr Eiddels better efforts.

I was so surprised to hear that Gustav Eiffel built this bridge. I looked it up on Wikipedia just to make sure and did see information about it. I am impressed that something so sturdy and useful was made so long ago and still survives today.

Eh, I've seen some of Eiffel's works around the world beyond the tower, and have to say this is one of the lesser ones. Cool that it was built by him, but that's really all there is to it. It is a bridge. it crosses the river. there are lots of other bridges... that actually give a better view because they are unobstructed by all those red iron struts.

This is one of the bridges you cross from the new to the old part of Girona. Whilst on the bridge you have the lovely view of the houses along the river. This must be the most photographed place in Girona.
