Puente del Mar (literally, "Sea Bridge") was for centuries the natural route over the now-diverted river to the port. The original bridge was destroyed by floods, and this one was built to replace it in 1591. Centuries later, specifically in 1933, it was pedestrianised and elegant stairs were added, as designed by Javier Goerlich. Puente del Mar consists of 10 arches measuring 15 and a half metres each. You'll also find carvings of the Virgen de los Desamparados, patron saint of Valencia, and San Pascual all along the bridge.
