Neighborhood: Barrio Antiguo
Overview

You'll find the best views of the old city walls and the impressive 15th century Gothic stone cross from the Roman Bridge. The Romans built the first defensive walls here using the natural course of the river and the cliffs above as guidelines. The invading Arab armies destroyed most of the Roman construction and it wasn't until the Arabs were expelled in the 12th Century that the returning Christian population built another city wall. Few remains of either wall survived Carlos III's policy of city expansion and improvement.
