Puente Romano, Salamanca
(4.3/5 based on 600+ 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.
