White Bridge (Zubi Zuri), Bilbao
(3.4/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • A Calatrava design. Unfortunately the glass walkway for a Groot share now protected by a black Bishop. It was during rain too smooth to the crossing. Nonetheless it is a fantastic mooiec bridge.

  • Zubizuri is marked on the tourist maps and it is worthy of that, being a spectacular addition to the riverscape. It may not be universally liked by architects but it does reflect the resurrection of t...  more »

  • 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!!!
