At 24 metres tall and 134 metres long, this bridge connects that two banks of the Ebro River. It was the second suspension bridge built using reinforced concrete in the world after the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, from where it takes its inspiration.
The Amposta Suspension Bridge is now one of the most distinctive architectural icons of the city. Built in 1915, it contributed greatly to improving communications between the towns in the Ebro Delta, as it was the first permanent means to cross the river in its lower sections.
The bridge stands out for the two large stone pilasters in the shape of a triumphal arch standing on each side of the river. The bridge’s structure, supported by cables, was considered an engineering marvel during the period when it was built.
