  • Really impressive full-bridge with 2000 years of history. Exclusively pedestrian traffic and pleasant journey. They should get more out of tourism. Of easy access.

  • Roman bridge complete little care and should get more out of tourism. Easy access and pedestrian traffic only.

  • It is the second longest Roman bridge of the world... with 792 meters, takes advantage of an island in the middle of the scythe and has 60 arches, which I recommend that you carefully see top 10 which are the least damaged and original. He has already suffered several reforms in epic Visigothic, Arabic and modern epic. He has flown on several occasions and its central part is the most damaged by the river rises. Not leave you indifferent...
