The one that I think is the longest of Spain: Puente del V Centenario, Sevilla (Bridge of the 5th century), opened in 1992, right 500 years later of the discover of America.
It is in Sevilla, the city from where the ships to America used to start their trips in the XVI century, and where it was organised a universal exposition for this year:
A photo of 1991, during its construction:

The bridge, that has 42 meters in the tallest part of the road, 120 meters at the top of the two twins towers:

And the complete bridge, that goes over the fluvial port of Sevilla, so that's why there is so much industry in the photo and trucks over the bridge

The total cars that cross everyday the bridge is more than 140.000, but due to the high cost of it, it has 5 lanes instead of 6 like the rest of road SE-30 (which is the first ringroad of Sevilla)
The total length of the bridge is 2016m

Also, from some perspectives is easy to have the impression that the ramp are so high, but they are not more than the 5%

Anyway, in 2014 or 2015 it will be opened in Cadiz a new and longest bridge: Puente la Pepa, which is now U/C and it will be 5000m long:


Cadiz is a city situated in a plac that before was an island, today is not but still is difficult to enter in the city: there are only two roads for entering and when one of them has workings, the other used to get collapsed, so this bridge is very needed:

I strongly agree. Without needing to check any page, Cadiz brigde will be the longest in Spain, but still is on works.

There is a thread about it (in Spanish) if someone wanna more info
Ya ves que fuimos puente herido de abrazos detenidos por ver la libertad
