    It is not to be the best bridge of Madrid, but it is a site of almost essential step. And your view and nearby monuments make it pleasant. But panels have cut any possibility of stopping in the and look at your around. Now it is only a place of transit.

    A curious this place, which was once known as the VIADUCT of the suicidal... for being the point whereby people with intention of killing oneself is throwing (it is easy to spot it on the way to the Almudena Cathedral or the Royal Palace).

    Segovia Viaduct is known also as the viaduct of the Bailén Street, is in the Centre of Madrid and very close to some of the most important points of tourist interest in the city, as the remains of the wall of the city, the Almudena Cathedral, Royal Palace, etc... You could say that it is a viaduct known by locals, but of little interest to tourists. And I say very known by the inhabitants of Madrid, by the suicides that here have been going on, since the 19th century. We have been a few days, for Madrid, and we've been through this viaduct, as so many other times we have passed, and I from tiny, when my parents and my grandparents took me to the Park of Vistillas, which is next to it. This viaduct was built in order to prolong the Bailén Street, which is located in its upper part and save at the same time the unevenness of the Calle Segovia. It has suffered throughout the years different remodeling, to its current appearance, a few years ago a transparent safety screens, were installed to prevent suicides occurring there. !! What Madrid do not know of any case of these! It is a viaduct with road traffic and sidewalk for passers-by. As I said at the beginning, this viaduct has not just tourist attractions.

  • You can see some parts of the city while walking on to bridge. Before the bridge starts, there is Calle de Bailen where you can walk by and see a nice view of the city. It is not crowded and is a nice quiet place.
  • Beautiful
  • Beautiful bridge, a shame that this protected by a huge stained-glass windows that they cover all your ride and not you can look, place where have been multiple suicides that the windows.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
