Bilbao / Santurtzi

Re: Bilbao / Santurtzi

 

Stand at the dock waiting for POBI to return?

 

If you are doing a minicruise (unlikely, given bf foot passenger service) or you've arrived early for your return trip, it is well worth taking a walk up the river. There is a bridge over the river which is similar (but smaller) than the Middlesborough transporter bridge. You can have endless fun with the Spanish by arguing who thought the concept up.

 

You'll also find fishermen catching all manner of weird and wonderful fish, including quite sizeable squid.

 

When leaving the port (especially when its dark) try to be a little careful when walking to the town- it isn't far but the area between the port and the railway isn't somewhere you want to hang around too long carrying cash, cameras, laptop etc.

what to see in santurtzi

try http://turismo.santurtzi.org/en/recorridos.aspx

 

about Derek and the bridge... i must say that is the oldest one all over the world 1893, designed by Augusto Palacios (Glass palace and bank of spain in Madird), who studied with Eiffel. It cost 6000 euros at the 19th century and was destroyed during spanish civil war.

 

please note biscaye had a huge british influence, they brought technologie and facilities to exploit iron ore mines from gallarta, triano.... It was Pliny the Elder, was a Roman naturalist, and natural philosopher, as well as naval and army commander of the early roman empire, who talked about it 2000 years ago in his work naturalis historia.

The iron from Biscaye was also preseted in Shakespeare's Hamlet, the sword was called Bilbo (not baggins sorry ;)) cause it was made of iron from Bilbao (in basque bi=2 and lbo=side, shore, cause citycenter is divided into 2 by river Nervion)
