White Bridge (Zubi Zuri), Bilbao

(3.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Stroll across the curved walkway of the unusually shaped steel White Bridge (Zubi Zuri). Designed by famous Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava and built in 1997, this white suspension bridge spans the Nervión River. A translucent brick deck lines the well-traversed pedestrian bridge, now partially covered to keep pedestrians from slipping in wet weather. Ramps makes the bridge wheelchair accessible.

  • Zubizuri bridge (translated from the Basque-"white bridge") architect Santiago Calatrava is one of the most unusual sights and clearly deserves a more original name: looking at it from the bottom, neither give nor take the spine of some huge animal, dinosaur, probably. We have walked on it before a visit to the Guggenheim Museum and were surprised by the black neskol'zjashhemu cover track, which spoil the appearance of the glass bridge Guide explained that during the rain very slippery and there were multiple injuries so and put track. Especially impressive building looks at night when white bridge reflects off glass surfaces the Museum. Beautiful views with bridge.

  • As an engineer I loved geometry and the design of the bridge. It is very curious. For who does not know much of calculation of structures only appreciate a bridge curious and beautiful.

  • Very cute bridge that offers beautiful views of the estuary of Bilbao. Located in the best area of the city to stay. Ten minutes walk from the Guggenheim Museum and about 15 of the old town. You can get walking and has ramps to get on and off cycling. Fully lit night and reflected on the water of the river

  • This restaurant was metres away from our hotel, the Conde Duque, but for some reason we did not try it until our last night in Bilbao. A bit of an error, this was the best meal we had in our 4 nights in Bilbao. First night (New Year's eve) was tapas on the Plaza Nueva, second night was restaurant Amaya which was fine, the third night was the restaurant Mandoya which was dreadful. We should have gone here sooner. The place was reasonably busy in the bar with everyone watching a home soccer match. The waiter was very helpful in explaining the dishes, the starters are generous enough to have one as a sharing platter. For mains my wife had the veal cheeks braised in red wine and I had the duck breast, both dishes were faultless and they both cam with a vegetable garnish. The waitre very helpfully suggested one of the cheaper Riojas on the wine list which went really well with the meat. And we ended up sharing a dessert, not planned, but again one dessert was plenty for two. We would definitely go back here if we visit Bilbao again, and I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
  • Beautiful bridge near the Guggenheim design by Calatrava. Like a lot of his work it's seemingly impossible shape is reminiscent of a skeleton
  • Great restaurant... No food for me, only drinking.
  • Iconic pedestrian bridge close to Guggenheim
  • Great bridge with a funny story behind!!!
