Vizcaya Transporter Bridge

Posted by

50 metres below, cars make the 160 metre crossing over the Nervion River on little more than a tea tray suspended by steel cables! The observation platform atop the structure dating back to 1893 shudders and shimmies disconcertingly every 8 minutes as the gondola ferries people and vehicles between Portugalete and Getxo on opposite banks.

The bridge became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2006.
