  • You can not only enjoy the Roman architecture but also amendments which took a company of engineering of the 19th century. This reform plans are in the convent of San Benito and it is a pleasure to see them.

  • Impressed to see the bridge of Alcántara, of more than 1900 years since it is a "Roman bridge" in arch built between the years 103 and 104 d. C. The Tagus River passes under it by the city of Alcântara, in the province of Cáceres. One of the most impressive examples of Roman civil engineering.

  • Simply spectacular ancient Roman bridge over the Tajo River. Built in the year 103 AD, it has a complete little Roman temple at the foot. You can walk and even drive across, which is actually rather thrilling when you think about it.
  • such an intense visit it's definizely worth it. It's a historical milestone and makes you easier understand how borders are the way they are... also check on the center of that old city... San Pedro de Alcantara has also a statue in Madrid, that made me actually visit Alcantara.
  • Amazing bridge. Hard to believe it's nearly 2000 years old.
  • Roman bridge. Nearly 200 years standing there over a deep gorge and showing the impressive engineering capabilities of the Romans. There is little Roman temple nearby.
  • Is one of the best places to cross the border
