Cultural Heritage

Santa Catalina Bridge is the second of the four bridges across the River Urumea in Donostia-San Sebastián and links up two main roads of the city, Avenida de la Libertad Avenue and Calle de Miracruz Street. 


The first records on the bridge date back to the 14th century. The ancient wooden pass was the only one connecting both banks until the 19th century, for they knocked down the old wooden pass in 1870 and built the present one in Neoclassic style under the supervision of Antonio Cortázar. 


The bridge consists of four depressed arches and masonry with light coloured stone from Mutriku and red limestone from Ereño.
