Experience a piece of history at Roman Bridge, the longest surviving bridge from ancient times, which crosses the Guadiana River.

You can cross the bridge on foot to the park on the other side, and visit the Alcazaba of Mérida, a Moorish fortification. This site is particularly beautiful at sunrise or sunset.

  • We walked the entire span of this bridge (1km) marveling at its construction and beauty. It's nearly impossible to believe that, although has been restored in areas, is still standing and usable today...  more »

  • Well maintained bridge from Romans still in use on foot or bike. In the middle there is an island with a nice garden for a walk or run.
  • ATTENTION!!! Don't go alone on this bridge! You risk to be attacked by strange Spanish guys if they see you are alone, even in the middle of the day! It happened to me about 3pm on this bridge! It's very dangerous place indeed! Take care!
  • Who can say anything bad about a Roman bridge that is so well maintained. Walking through this town is like walking through Roman history.
  • Great Roman bridge that's stood the test of time impressively
  • Very attractive Roman bridge.
