Puente Pasarela GR 14 en Pesquera de Duero

Located in the municipality of Pesquera de Duero, it is one of the largest wooden bridges manufactured in Spain (the largest of its category), with a total length of 106 meters, 3 meters wide, a maximum light that exceeds 50 meters and weighs about 50 tons. Formed by 4 modules built in Asturias and later transported with special vehicles to Pesquera, where they were assembled in a week, being perfectly adjusted to the landscape and causing a reduced visual impact (unlike concrete or steel) without reducing the resistance or quality of the bridge. The balustrade in the form of a barrel make a nod to one of the main activities that irrigates the Douro: the production of wine.
As with the Quintanilla de Arriba walkway, comparisons with a snake are inevitable due to the zigzag that the structure draws over the Duero.
You can see more river bridges here.
