The Joining Bridge.

Pedestrian bridge (by Calatrava) that connects neighborhoods of Infante Juan Manuel and Vistabella over Segura river.
This bridge has been controversial. One of the biggest complaints is that the floor was glass and when it rained, it was very slippery, and several elderly people had accidents. That was solved by placing a "carpet", which takes a lot of beauty to the bridge.
Another perspective from 2012.

The Empty City

During summer, the town is deserted. Although a few years ago, it was not very common to find people on the street during the month of August (people go to the beach, about 30-40 minutes away), especially, in the last 15 years I have observed that is not happened. I guess the economic changes, changes in lifestyle (both spouses have to work), have influenced.
