The Vizcaya Bridge (Bizkaiko Zubia in Basque, Puente de Vizcaya in Spanish) is a transporter bridge that links the towns of Portugalete and Las Arenas (part of Getxo) in the Biscay province of Spain, crossing the mouth of the Nervion River.
People in the area, and even the official website, commonly call it the Puente Colgante (literally "hanging bridge", used for suspension bridge in Spanish), although its structure is quite different from a suspension bridge.

Very cheap price for a great view, especially when the weather is nice. Information on it's history is at various stops on the bridge though not well translated. Otherwise cool site to see in a small but charming town.

Really neat bridge and unique tram underneath. Cheap and fun activity we all enjoyed. There are some lovely buildings around the grounds on either side of the bridge as well. Highly recommend

Pride monument for residential people. Built on XIX century one of the places you must to see. I also recommend to pay the tickets to take the elevator a cross the bridge. Try this one just on sunny days.

Beautiful bridge allowing you to see some of the most impressive views of this area. It's a beautiful neighborhood, too.

A unique opportunity. Went there for photographs. Took the 40 cent trip, cheap. The walk above at 8 euro was too much! Super to watch the operation of the bridge. Spent 30 minutes there watching and taking great photos. A must see...

Cheap crossing over the river which the kids loved. Ridiculously expensive to walk across the top but spectacular views. Staff very helpful

A lovely little Portuguese town just minutes from Bilbao city centre! A jewel you must visit!

Fascinating iron built transporter bridge from 1883. Well worth a visit and a ride. You can even go on the footbridge 46 metres up - not for vertigo sufferers or the faint hearted!

Whatever you do in Bilbao do not miss the visit to Portugallete. Just cross the bridge and like Bilbao they have awesome restaurants and tapas bar. Hint prices are cheaper.

Interesting industrial bridge, one of a few remaining ones left in the world of the kind. It was justly declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Very cheap to cross the river and nice picture opportunities.
