Puente Romano, Salamanca

4.3
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. Make Puente Romano part of your personalized Salamanca itinerary using our Salamanca tour itinerary planner.

    View from the gate side of the bridge is visible on the opposite side intended to defend the Roman bridge and the town in the Torre de la Calahorra Fort, built in the Islamic era is a thing. Bridge is locked during the Roman era, the base at the time, seems to have left.
