Bridge of Vizcaya

Bilbao is one of the few cities in the world to offer you the option to switch between the riverwalk leaving you "carry" from the bridge. The Bridge of Vizcaya, Bizkaiko Zubia in the Basque language, is the first transporter bridge in the world, active since 1893 and designed by Alberto de Palacio. This amazing high bridge of 51 meters and 164 meters long, is not in the city of Bilbao but the estuary of the River Nervion: in Portugalete, a picturesque medieval town considered part of Bilbao because it is easily accessible by subway. The deck allows you to reach Las Arenas Getxo and, where some of the most beautiful beaches on the coast of Bilbao.
