Also stop to see the water flow to/from the estuary - interesting & on a hot day, pleasant with the nice sea breeze. Also historic Architecture to look out right beside... More

There is nothing spectacular about this bridge. There are several bridges to cross the river. I counted at least five. This one is closer to the ocean. The best part is to stand on the bridge and watch the ocean during high tide. You can see ocean water pushing the river upstream. It is a sight to watch.

Its a bridge... its a nice bridge but just a bridge. It is about the first thing you see after arriving by bus. But that's about it.

Not much to say. It's a very nice bridge and the view of the waves rolling up the estuary is great. It's free too.

Sure, its a nice looking bridge but people calling it romantic, beautiful are a bit over exaggerating. Best used for just getting from one side to the other not one of those iconic European bridges.

We arrived San Sebastián by bus from Bilbao, this bridge is located just outside the bus station and close to the tourist information. Once we put an eye on it, we at same time said, we remember this nice bridge from our last visit to San Sebastián which was 19 years ago. Meaning we did not forget this nice piece... More

Ornate bridge in the midst of town, crossing the river. Each of the towers is unique, and provides a baroque element to fit in with the grand buildings around it.

This bridge did a great job of providing a land crossing for land-based travelers to get from one side of the water to the other. It felt very solid under foot, as well as in the car and bus. I would say I recommend it!

If you are in San Sabastian go see it! All of the bridges there are quite wonderful and walking in the city is easy.
