Calatrava bridge, Athens: 1 reviews and 1 photos
This elegant structure was finished just before the Olympic Games on the designs of Santiago Calatrava. He said that his inspiration for this were the glorious Athenian vessels, although it also resembles a harp. It is actually a pedestrian bridge that links the two sides of busy Mesogion street towards the metro station.
It is made of steel and is formed by a main curved pillar 50 metres high, from which 14 thick steel cables hang down to sustain the 94 metre walkway, suspended over the avenue.
Address: Mesogion & Katehaki str
Directions: "Katehaki" metro station
