  • One of the most impressive relics of the Roman remains in the Iberian Peninsula. The Roman bridge is now surrounded by several green spaces for recreation.

  • It is a Roman bridge that you can walk, and have magnificent views of the Guadiana and the wall of Mérida. Roman pavement, closed to traffic, is highly recommended for walking calmly.
