Ponte Romana, Ponte de Lima
(4.8/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This bridge in Ponte de Lima is medieval and a small part. There is a Roman legend, who crossed the River, lost memory. The Commander of a small Roman Legion, decided to cross and the other side to prove that he had lost his memory, called his soldiers by name. Only then had the courage to cross. This bridge also are 2 paths to Santiago de Compostela, which comes from Barcelos and what comes from the port.
