From the bridge you will get your best views of the hanging houses. Once on the other side you can visit the Convento de San Pablo.

Nice and quiet place to visit. You see a lot of people crossing. You get a great view from the bridge. It moves a little bit while you walk on it.

Definitely not for anyone afraid of heights, but do your best to be brave and walk across to see a spectacular view of the city. It's even better at night!
