Alamillo Bridge

Puente del Alamillo
Sevilla , Spain

Where: Seville, Spain, crossing the Guadalquivir River.

Stats: 820 feet long; 465 feet high.

Awe Factors: Built in 1992 by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and said to resemble a harp, the bridge is the first design of its kind: its central mast leans at a 58 degree angle, making it appear as if it’s balancing. Calatrava is fast becoming one of the major innovators in bridge design (other works include the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Tenerife Opera House), renowned for his elegant, clean style and skeletal, almost “unfinished” designs.
