This bridge, popularly known as the Iron bridge or bridge of the Fish, was built by Gustave Eiffel and Cie. in 1876, thirteen years before the opening of the famous Parisian tower and firm as architect Manuel Almeda. It is a bridge structure fully united with iron rivets, a section of 41.5 meters long and 2.62 meters wide, located 7 meters from the river Onyar.
The aforementioned bridge gave vitality to the city of Girona as it approached the heart of the old city of La Rambla and Calle Santa Clara new opening to the outside. The swellings caused the river to replace the old wooden red lever to the new bridge, which inherited the same color.
Curiously Gironi emphasize that the bridge has a similar structure replicated Narbonne.
