Puente Romano, Salamanca

(4.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the resilience of Puente Romano, as 15 of its 26 arches are over 2,000 years old. This ancient construction, crossing the Tormes River, was built in the first century CE. Walk across the bridge away from the city and look back for superb views of Salamanca, including the cathedrals and other major monuments. You may recognize the bridge as being part of the city’s shield. Beside the bridge, look for the sculpture of a bull, which is also featured on the crest. A visit to Puente Romano represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Salamanca vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • It dates back to the first century a.d. There is a massive construction and although much has been rebuilt over time, there's a completely identical part originally. It should not hesitate to quietly do the crossing to realize the view on the city. Once arrived at its end, take a right and along the driveway to his foot you will discover signs that give very pertinent information on its history. The end of the view of the Cathedral is spectacular.

  • Pedestrian crossing. The bridge has suffered several interventions over the centuries, but have your beauty.

  • The walk to the bridge is beautiful! The bridge is very well preserved, it's worth going through to the other side to have the most beautiful view of Salamanca and if possible, extend until sunset, to see the city lit up!! Walk 10 Note!
