Fort St. Elmo is a historic spot in Malta, and in the early 1900s this area was accompanied by a footbridge. However, during WWII the bridge was destroyed, and since then the lighthouse has been cut off from the mainland. To fix this problem, Arenas Asociados came in and recreated this historical structure.
The bridge itself is quite small, considering the space in between the mainland and the isolated lighthouse is not that wide. Moreover, a simplistic structure was used without adding anything too fancy. The truss area of the bridge ensures that walkers aren't blown into the water on a windy day, which does occur a decent amount in this area. Overall the bridge stands out due to its red design in comparison to the stone walls of the surrounding area.
