Admire the city and the river from the bridges with the most history.
Over the Urumea River.
There are three bridges over the Urumea River that encompass a large part of San Sebastián's history from the 19th and 20th century. The oldest is the Santa Catalina, neoclassical in style, built in 1872. The María Cristina is possibly the most beautiful bridge in the city. Its main features are the four obelisks at its ends crowned by sculptures. Built in 1905, it was once a symbol of modernity. The Zurriola, better known as the Kursaal Bridge, was built in 1921. It is the closest to the mouth of the river. To complete your tour of bridges, you can see some very nice modern constructions, such as the Mundaiz Bridge or the Lehendakari Aguirre.
