Long bridge
Mar 2018 • Couples
La Maza is a long, old bridge (16th century) in the bay adjacent to San Vicente de la Barquera. Hard to get a good viewpoint to snap it in one picture as it has 28 arches.

Long. Bridge ... Watch the fish
Jul 2017 • Couples
Unfortunately when we visited the weather was horrendous even though it was the end of June it was torrential rain.... So although the bridge is super ... We hastened our visit. We have however seen it as we drove back ( in the sunshine ) and we will return

Hold your breath
Apr 2017 • Couples
We were told by our guide that you should hold your breath as you travel across the bridge and if you succeed then you can make wish, we both tried but failed even though the coach traveled at a reasonable speed. It is a good land mark and the view from the bay looking across to the bridge is really good. The town at the end of the bridge has plenty of gift ideas to take away. The main point of visiting the bridge is that it is on the St James Way and you are likely to see pilgrims making the way along the way mostly by foot although we saw two on bikes!

Bridge

Not sure what you can say about a bridge. It's goes over the water connecting the town to the other side. People fish from it.

Beautiful view of St Vicente from bridge
Apr 2016 • Couples
Walked across this bridge each morning to the beach & returned via lighthouse & path along the harbouside. Gorgeous views of the snow capped mountains. People fishing from the bridge most mornings, one man regularly cathing squid. The water is so clear, interesting sandbank when tide is out. Busy little port with large & small vessels in & out. Lovely bars & tavernas on quay side to enjoy Menu of the Day. Always incredible value.

Interesting bridge
May 2015 • Couples
This well made bridge with what some say, has 28 arches, others quote 32, is certainly a long bridge - for it's time. It is built in the 16th century in this traditional Spanish fishing village. We can't build bridges that sturdy and long lasting now...- Quality mattered.... There are 6 local beaches in the area, we visited the one called Meran, the beaches here are gorgeous, great sand, soft, clean, great to walk on and the air was so clean. Loved this area. Enjoy the beach, bridge, and stop in at a local restaurant. From there we traveled to Santillana del Mar where we stayed the night.

Good Engineering
Aug 2014 • Couples
The Puente de la Maza is an important feat of medieval engineering that was started in the 15th century. It was constructed with stone over an older bridge made of wood. The wooden bridge had been constructed in the 6th century. It is a long bridge with a length more than 500 meters and had 32 arches. It was considered one of the longest bridges at that time in Spain. It goes over the San Vicente Ria. The construction took place during the reign of Carlos III. There have been several reconstructions and today there are 28 arches. During fiestas it is used for setting off fireworks.
