In my opinion Puente De Arganzuela is not just a great looking bridge that spans the River Manzanares and connects the Carabanchel District to the Arganzuela District but it a great piece of art .
Construction between 2010 -2011 at a cost of €12 million, its a tubular encased bridge in two sections with a span of 556 metres ,its spiral design is amazing, it's a wonderful addition to the quite recently created Arganzuela Park and is just so cool to walk along ,it's most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate along Paseo De Las Yeserias.

This major footbridge was designed by the French architect Dominique Perrault and was inaugurated in 2011 at the completion of the huge Madrid Rio Project that transformed the former industrial riverside.
Linking the districts of Carabanchel and Arganzuela, the design of this modern bridge is a double metal spiral in the form of a ringlet with two arms, covered by metallic mesh that shines during the day and is illuminated at night by streetlamps designed to look like birds and butterflies. Inside there are wooden floors, benches to sit down for a rest, and a bike lane running right the way over it as part of the cycle network that goes around the whole park.
We visited this one as part of a very enjoyable Saturday morning walking the Manzanares River starting at the Puenta del Rey after emerging from the nearby Principe Pio Metro station and followed its course past Puente de Segovia, then the Puente de Toledo before finishing here at the Puente de Argonzuela. Whereas the others probably do not justify a special trip on their own this one is the closest to say its worth visiting, especially on a fine weather day, when the many other aspects of the Parque Madrid Rio can be enjoyed.

I walked a long rewarding walk from the Palace, towards the bridge and I enjoyed every minute of the route. The iconic bridge (actually there are two bridges in the areas) runs over a newly refurbished park and connects two districts characterized by wide boulevards. This is cyclist and pedestrian bridge furnished with an amazing wooden decking and lit with modern light poles. In the middle of the bridge, the designers created seating areas taking advantage the level differences which makes the bridge ideal for a resting area.

This is a must visit if you want to experience modern architecture in a vast outdoor space away from the typical tourist spots. Personally, I loved it and couldn't stop taking pictures.

Architecturally interesting. Foot bridge or bikes (I think). One of many bridges across the river. Modern exterior, doesn’t really fit in with the park’s feel.

It’s a bridge across the river, one of many in this area. But, unique, modern design. Not sure it enhances the serenity of the park, however.

The Arganzuela foot bridge is a bit out of the way from the normal touristic stops in Madrid. But I love architecture and made my way down. Sooo very cool! Take some snacks and sit along the shaded benches for an afternoon repose.

Arganzuela Footbridge is an amazing footbridge that spans the River Manzanares.
A tubular bridge that looks fantastic, built at a cost of €12.000.000 between 2010 - 2011 ,its a pedestrianised bridge that's also open to cyclists ,the views of the beautiful Arganzuela Park from the bridge area stunning and it's interesting to see the adjacent ancient dtone bridge Puerte De Toledo which is the complete opposite to this shiny metal bridge.
To me Arganzuela Footbridge is more than a bridge,its a piece of art and a statement about the forward thinking of this most beautiful of city's.
Well worth checking out if your in the area.

Puente De Arganzuela ( Arganzuela Footbridge ) is a fantastic looking modern bridge that spans the River Manzanares .
Its actually known as Pasarela Del Arganzuela and to me is a stunning piece of modern art ,a bridge that links the Carabanchel and Arganzuela districts and passes over Arganzuela Park.
This bridge is unique, two tubular sections form the length of the bridge which is 556 metres long ,the spiralling look of the bridge is superb,constructed between October 2010 and March 2011 and the work of French designer Dominique Perrault at a cost of €12.000.000 .
The bridge accommodates both pedestrian and cyclists and is a landmark feature of the newly created Arganzuela Park,I love walking across this bridge and looking over to the ancient stone bridge Puente De Toledo, the contrast between the two bridges could not be more obvious.
A beautiful bridge, if your planning a holiday to Madrid most definitely well worth checking out.

Arganzuela Footbridge is a great engineering achievement. The steel footbridge is designed for pedestrians and cyclists. It is 250 metres long and you can cross over the park and the river. The views are stunning. You can get off the bridge and walk on the ground or you can stay and keep going. Highly recommended place to visit.
