Puente Romano, Salamanca

Puente Romano - Salamanca, Spain
Puente Romano
Ribera del Puente, Salamanca, Spain 37008Map
Neighborhood: Barrio Antiguo

This bridge over the Tormes River, built in Roman times, linked Mérida to Astorga. Of the 26 early arches only the first 15 are left. The rest disappeared as a result of floods and the passage of time. The major flood was the San Policarpo flood in 1626, which destroyed eleven arches and resulted in rebuilding. There are no signs of battlements left, but it is still a wonderful spot where you can look down on the city immortalized by the famous writer, philosopher and professor, Miguel de Unamuno.
