Easy to reach from central Bilboa on the Metro (Areeta is easier than Portugalette), and free if you have a Bilbao Bizkaia card. This for me was one of the highlights of the trip. The views from the top of the bridge were great and the plaques explaining about the bridge were very well done - informative without overdoing it... More

Looking for a day trip, got great advice from tourist information. Train to Potugalete, stroll with the bridge in front of you, great lunch in the town ( venture in don't stop at the first places you come too) then a crossing for 40 cents. Great walk up to Getxo and a metro back to Bilbao from there. Great day... More

So, you can visit the top part of the bridge and enjoy the view and read the story of the bridge. The same ticket will also allow you to make a one way trip on the transporter! Very different from anything I've ever seen! Worth the while if you're looking for something different and great views. However the surrounding area... More

It is located very near Bilbao. It is the world's oldest transporter bridge and was built in 1893, designed by Alberto Palacio, one of Gustave Eiffel's disciples. The Vizcaya Bridge was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO. They considered the bridge to be a perfect combination of beauty and functionality. It was the first to use a combination of iron... More

This is a very unique bridge and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is definitely worth paying to go on the tour although I don't know that the audio tour is worth it. The views from above are incredible and the tour includes a ride back on the gondola/ferry.

Fast and easy to go up. First you go by lift, then you can cross by foot all the bridge on top, after you can come back to your side by the transbordador. Suggest for the construction and the views!

Just ten minutes driving from Bilbao city center - one of most unexpected attractions I could think about. It is beautiful, it is interesting, it is really good for curious children of 5+. Audio guided tour is excellent and the view from the top of the bridge is really breathtaking. And for all of it you need maximum 90 minutes... More

A really interesting visit from the historical point of view. Impressive panoramic view of the anthropically modified estuary of Nervión-Ibaizabal. Unfortunately, the visit is too short for the ticket price (7€). Anyway, you cannot miss it.

This is a kind of cable bridge. You can go trough it in the cable car or just take an elevator to the top. It's a must if you're in the zone
