The Puente Maria Cristina is the most elegant structure crossing over the River Urumea. The eclectic construction connects the centre of San Sebastián with the Estación del Norte Station. Engineer José Eugenio Ribera and architect Julio María Zapata were responsible for building it in 1904 in a record time of nine months. The Puente María Cristina consists of three openings and the pattern followed for its construction was the Alejandro III Bride in Paris, with its four obelisks at its ends surmounted by sculptures.
