Roman Bridge, Cordoba
(4.3/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
The Roman bridge of Córdoba is a bridge in the Historic centre of Córdoba, Andalusia, southern Spain, built in the early 1st century BC across the Guadalquivir river.It is included in the small preserved area known as Sotos de la Albolafia.HistoryThe bridge was built by the Romans in the early 1st century BC, perhaps replacing a previous wooden one. It currently, after the Islamic reconstruction, has 16 arcades, one less than original ones, and a total length of 247 meters. The width is around 9 meters.The Via Augusta, which connected Rome to Cádiz, most likely passed through it. During the early Islamic domination the Muslim governor Al-Samh ibn Malik al-Khawlani ordered a bridge to be built on the ruins of what was left of the old Roman construction. In the Middle Ages, the Calahorra Tower and the Puerta del Puente were built at the bridge's southern and northern ends, respectively (the latter is now a 16th-century reconstruction). The bridge was reconstructed and expanded to its current size. The arches depict the famous Moorish architecture that dominates the city's scenery. In the 17th century, a sculpture depicting St. Raphael was put in the mid of the bridge, executed by Bernabé Gómez del Río.

  • When you are in Europe you really gets those steps on you fitbit. The city has resurfaced the bridge for safety, and it is wonderfully lit for evening strolls and beautiful pictures. There has been so...  more »
  • The bridge explicitly many times restored and rebuilt, so the impression that from the Romans only title. In addition, the bridge leads to a part of town where there are no landmarks, so the goal in itself is just walking up to him. However, given its proximity to Mesquite, visit its pretty simple.

  • Besides being beautiful, you give a pleasant stroll across the river and see the mosque and another perspective to see it.
