The Viaduct is absolutely huge and runs very close to the Royal Palace and Cathedral. There are thick glass panels blocking access to the edge of the viaduct and consequently the views. I can only assume it's to stop people from falling off...or jumping off?...More

In Madrid took a walking tour and part of the tour visited this bridge. The architecture is magnificent but the history is sad as it was dubbed as suicide bridge.

El Viaducto supports the road running south from the palace and the cathedral. Seems to modern with basic concrete design. There were no views possible westwards as frosted screens have been erected to prevent people falling off.

We stayed near here so we got to walk over the viaduct many times. The view was great and streets going under came out to parks and hidden neighborhoods.

The views are great, you can see how big is the city and the sun setting down, the cathedral on the back, its very nice, there are glasses on each side but its still possible to take good pictures.

It is just a bridge but the cantilever design is very impressive, It is close to the cathedral and palace so we came to have a look whilst waiting for the changing of the guards to start. Worth a pass over although you cannot look...More

I would not go out of my way to see this. It is a modern bridge not a viaduct. the sun settin benath it is nice and it demonstrates that Madrid is not completely flat.

Having walked over the viaduct, it is undeniable that there are some lovely views but the bridge itself is relatively modern and Unimpressive!!
