Ponte Romana, Ponte de Lima

#1 of 18 in Things to do in Ponte de Lima
Sightsee along Ponte Romana, an old Roman bridge spanning the River Lima. Cars are not able to cross the bridge, so you will have to go on foot, but the beautiful views will make you forget any travel-weary feet. The structure was rebuilt in 1362 and is made up of 24 arched vaults. Nearby, check out the quaint village and ask the people about the long local history. Check ahead of time for the market day schedule if you want to see the locals going about their daily lives.

  • The walk across the bridge and a visit to the church is quite nice. You could see some water wildlife like Kingfishers. Takes you back in time and nice and relaxing.  more »
  • Very well preserved bridge with a pleasant walk on both banks. Essential if you are in Ponte or the area.

  • Nice Portuguese bridge, maybe put you in Lima. I don't know if (as they say) the most beautiful of Portugal, although his reading associated and the sculptures of the centurion and the legion (one on each side) give it charm. They say that you have music, but some days (or hours) not so. Preferred to see the Parque do Arnado, at one of its ends.
