Puente Romano, Salamanca

4.3
#8 of 39 in Sightseeing in Salamanca
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Salamanca

Known for its uniform sandstone grid of historical buildings, the compact city center is often considered Salamanca's main attraction. Staying in the historical center allows you to explore the many iconic landmarks, quaint plazas, and majestic architecture, as well as experience the lively tapa and wine culture. Tucked away in the cobblestone streets of the center are a number of historical hotels that represent the city's rich cultural heritage, or you can opt to stay at one of the many family-owned pensions that dot the area for a more affordable accommodation option.
