Puente Romano, Salamanca

4.5
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.

  • Caught my attention in this Roman bridge, the fact that it is a bit wider of the other that was used to meet. Is one of many examples of the works that the Romans left us and were very helpful in your time and are still used more than 2000 years later. Under the bridge, beyond the river Tormes found a space for sport activities opposite the old town.

  • Walking this bridge is comfortable and allows a beautiful view of old town and the river that runs through the city. It is worth investing a portion of the time for being close to the Centre.

  • In view of the old bridge, you realize how your dignity and credibility built by ancient Romans. For a long time, the Roman Empire fell under the blows of the barbarians, the bridge built by sound engineers and restrained. True, not all parts of the monument construction in old age: it has destroyed some brackets because of the strong flood, and had to be repaired.

  • It's lovely, one of the most beautiful places in Salamanca. It stands over Río Tormes river and there parks at the start and at the end where you can sit and enjoy the view. Lots of trees. You can there for a picnic, getting a blanket, food and something to drink and you would love it. It's also very romantic.
  • Beautiful Roman bridge in the stunning city of Salamanca, dating back to over 2 millennia. Worth a visit at night too, well lit up with the amazing cathedral as a backdrop. Lots of people around so always safe.
  • Beautiful City to visit. Lots of gorgeous historical buildings, plazas and roads. Very relaxing and walk-able, better than expected.
  • A really lovely view of the old city and a fast flowing river that makes you feel cooler! The bridge itself isn't particularly spectacular
  • Lovely city worth stopping over for a couple of days
