Roman Bridge, Merida

4.7
Experience a piece of history at Roman Bridge, the longest surviving bridge from ancient times, which crosses the Guadiana River. The architecture of the bridge is a highlight for visitors, featuring sixty half-moon arches. 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.

    The bridge longer Roman (that is what they say), the walk is very nice. And this very well preserved.

    Always trickster both day and night. Walk from one side to another when the Sun has fallen is a superb choice.

    The Roman bridge long that I have visited in my life, very well preserved and in a wonderful setting. Without a doubt, I'll be back with less heat to traverse it to walk and enjoy even 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.
