Santiago Calatrava
 
location Valencia
function bridge, subway station
contributed by dirkverwoerd

The Alemeda bridge or Puente de Calatrava is built over the Turia river bed. As the bridge resembles a comb, it has been popularly nicknamed the "Peineta", the Spanish for decorative combs. From the transit track it takes an inclined arc of 14 meters, which contributes to the stability of the bridge, which is 26 meters width and 131 meters in length. Underneath the bridge you'll find the underground station. The steel canopies that mark the entrances to the underground station can be lowered by hydraulically driven rods, to rest flush with the pavers, thus sealing the station. The station is a centrally located stop for trains which connect the various suburbs of Valencia
