The town’s iconic laminated steel viaduct was opened in 1864 and weighs 18,000 tonnes. There is a difference in vault levels of 34 metres, and it’s 289 metres long in total. Its location imbued it with strategic value: the railway joining Irún and Madrid crossed this viaduct, so it became a connecting point between the port of Pasaia, Aragón and Castilla. It operated until July of 1995, when it was replaced by a concrete structure placed parallel to the viaduct.
