Bilbao Things to Do: 315 reviews and 716 photos
I was heading to the Old Town of Bilbao and was wandering along the river to see some of the bridges. I enjoyed just wandering around.
I started off the bridge tour with Puente de la Merced, follwed by the Puente de la Ribera, and ended up further along the river at the more historical of the three bridges, Puente San Anton.
Puente San Anton was originally built between 1871 and 1877 and was the only bridge across the river at that time, making it of extreme importance.
The current bridge was reconstructed in 1937, after it was demolished in the Spanish Civil War.
