This nine-arched bridge over the River Manzanares connects Calle Segovia with Paseo de Extremadura. It was built in 1582 during the reign of Felipe II by Juan de Herrera, who was also responsible for the Escorial Monastery. The bridge was intended to make the journey to Segovia a little easier. The architect gave it his personal trademark, adding some unmistakable stone bollards as decoration.
