It lies between Portugalete and Getxo, and is only 10 kilometers away from Bilbao.

The bridge is a beautiful representative of the flourishing european industrial architecture at the end of the XIXth century. Nowadays there are 7 other similar bridges in the world (three of them in Europe), but this one was the first to be constructed.

The bridge was built between 1890 and 1893, and was the first of its kind. It was designed by A. de Palacio, a friend of Eiffel. As it was seriously damaged in 1937, during the Spanish Civil War, it took its final look after reconstruction in 1941.
