A must, if you like the engineering masterpiece

Very interesting and pretty rare today, bridge solution. The impressive construction, still fulfilling its task. Do not miss, if you traval between Santander and Bilbao.

I've seen a lot of strange bridges, but this tops it all ! The "hanging" service transports even the cars etc., but the kick comes from crossing walking on top (elevators will bring you there )

Hop on a metro either blue line 2 (Kabiezes) or red line 1 (Plentzia). We travelled on the blue line, got off in Portugalete. Head down to the Nervion river, while enjoying the ambience of the town. After watching the transporter do its thing, very interesting technology, we paid to go up the elevator and walk over the bridge. Nice... More

You take a lift up to the top walk across and then get back across using the carrier which goes along the river. The area surrounding it isn't the nicest and its slightly removed from the centre but you can get the tube there quite direct. If you're in Bilbao for more than a day it's worth visiting.

It is cool to look at it from afar. However, on it, the views are not that great. The walking portion on top is just a way to make money, I would not recommend spending the nearly seven euros to walk across. Not that special.
