Visit this town just 27 km from Gorliz to see one of the most unique edifications worldwide, namely Bizkaia Bridge. An iron construction built by a Bizkaian engineer, a disciple of Eiffel, which joins both banks of the Nervión estuary. If you don’t suffer from vertigo, cross the panoramic footpath 50 metres up or simply on board the gondola that ‘floats’ over the river.
From the ‘hanging bridge’, a stroll along the beach bordered by magnificent mansions belonging to some of the most important Bizkaian entrepreneurs brings us to the marina to finish in an old fishermen’s quarter which today houses numerous bars and restaurants
