Sure, its a nice looking bridge but people calling it romantic, beautiful are a bit over exaggerating. Best used for just getting from one side to the other not one of those iconic European bridges.

Ornate bridge in the midst of town, crossing the river. Each of the towers is unique, and provides a baroque element to fit in with the grand buildings around it.

This bridge did a great job of providing a land crossing for land-based travelers to get from one side of the water to the other. It felt very solid under foot, as well as in the car and bus. I would say I recommend it!

When I returned to San Sebastián after 18 years, it was a happy return to see the bridge exactly as it was! I hope it will look the same forever but a little bit of makeup would be needed?

Beautiful bridge with lovely carvings and architecture. A bit of graffiti marred it slightly but still gorgeous. Cross the bridge and there is a tent market for trinkets and things.

A great piece of history and architecture! Lots of statues and very well designed, lots of small details which add to the beauty of this bridge. Great for taking photos. This was a great link for us from our hotel to the main bus/train station in san sebastian.
