Puente de Vizcaya, Bilbao

Stopped by the Guggenheim Museum, took some photos and I went to Puente de Vizcaya.

The Vizcaya Bridge is a transporter bridge that links the towns of Portugalete and Las Arenas (part of Getxo) in the Biscay province, crossing the mouth of the River Nervion.

Arrived at the bridge, I was overwhelmed by the huge building. So big!

I got the brochure at the tourist information office. It’s better to read this booklet than my explanation.

When I was going to leave the Puente de Vizcaya, I met a local family. They were going away and said, “Kaixo, Bidaia ona izan!” (I think, they greeted “Hello, have a nice trip!”) And they left for the home.

They don’t seem to be rich, but I think they are surely happy.
