Impressions of Getxo/Bilbao and Santander (April 2019)

The basque do have a funny language… it is even hard just to read. 🙂

The transporter bridge

You can’t really see, but there is a hanging transport cabin which can manage about 6 cars and my guess around 100 passengers. It was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2006. The bridges’ inauguration was in July 1893, becoming the first transporter bridge in the world built of metal.
