Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For me, it was not the bridge design that was remarkable, but the 2 fantastical "columns" situated at each end of the bridge. I had never seen anything like them before. These unusually bulky structures, painted white with gilt applied on the trim, stood out in the landscape. Atop of each appeared to be a figure riding a horse that had a dragon's tail, all done in gilt. Around the base of the structure appeared to be whitewashed portions of boat hulls jutting out from the column, similar to those seen on a rostral column. There were other gilt images signifying royalty, each with a crest in the middle of them. It was difficult to know what all of these images represented, but these columns certainly were interesting to look at. They had an odd pedestal base that looked like legs to me - very unusual! I don't think the Alexander Vll bridge in Paris which was used as a model for this bridge had these type of columns at each end. Overhead looking towards the city, I could see something that was not unusual - the single tall spire of the Good Shephard of Sebastian Cathedral.

Maria Kristina Zubia is a bridge across the Urumea River in San Sebastián. It is modeled after the Pont Alexandre III Bridge over the Seine River in Paris. We walked across the bridge from the bus station to Old Town. La Concha Beach is a short walk away.

One of the first sights many visitors to San Sebastian will see as it is right outside the train and bus station where the Bilbao airport bus drops you off. Really sets the standard for the city.

Old europe feeling. The bridge is very nice, walking from one side of the water to the other you get two feelings of different areas of San Sebastian.

This impressive bridge is named after a famous queen of Spain … we found it by accident walking the Paseo Nuevo, which is highly recommended.

The bridge is in an affluent part of downtown San Sebastian, close to high end hotels and restaurants. Was a very pleasant walk and also has a very nice view of the ocean.

this is a historic bridge.On the bridge highlighted the four monumental obelisks, located at its ends, copies of the Alexander III bridge in Paris, of 18 metres of high, crowned by sculptural groups. It was built on reinforced concrete, which was a novelty for that time, with three arches of 24 metres of long, with 20 metres of wide and 88 of long.good for a visit and some really nice pictures

It offers a spendid view of the riverside, the sea and east and west banks of the city. Reccommend to take the walk from the Hotel Maria Cristina side, take the Maria Cristina Brige and return to the old part of the city using the Kursaal Bridge.

The walk along the bridges towards the sea is amazing. It's quiet and beautiful.
It's a bit windy but the weather was pleasant with loads of sun. Highly recommend if you're stuck at the bus station or waiting for connection. It only takes 15min walking to get to the sea.

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.
