One of the most interesting bridges recently built over the old Turia riverbed, is the one designed by Santiago Calatrava. This bridge, with a futuristic look, greatly contrasts with its neighbor, Puente del Mar bridge. Valencians have dubbed the Calatrava bridge the "Peineta" (the typical Spanish ornamental comb), after the uncanny resemblance. The bridge, along with being a new and important landmark within the city, affords a privileged spot from which to watch all the firework displays during the Fallas festival, among others.
