this is a cracker of a pedestrian bridge.... If you are scared of heights, like I am, it presents a challenge, but well worth it. You can get a real feel for the inclination of the place, but can also get some great pictures, and...More

I found the bridge to be a bit scary but a single traveler asked us if we would walk across it with her and I thought that was brilliant. We managed very well but I saw many people stopped on the bridge taking photos so...More

Originally we were just going to drive by on our way north. It had been years since we had seen the hanging houses. When we got there it was obvious the bridge was the best viewing point. But even the bridge was a bit scary....More

It's a bit of climb to the bridge (we walked on the road to the Parador -to cross and then enter the old city). High above a gorge the iron bridge is a bit scary if you're not keen on heights. It has surprising low...More

As previous replies - can all be accessed by car - but I would suggest avoiding peak periods in the old town.
