Neighborhood: Casco Histórico
Overview

The bridge was finished in the 15th Century in Gothic style but had to be restored and repaired many times due to problems caused by flooding. The last reformation was in 1989-1991. The old stone parapet was recovered and the amount of vehicle traffic reduced. A cross in the middle of the bridge is a memorial to the War of Independence and at either end is a pair of lions designed by Francisco Rallo (the lion being the symbol of the city). From the middle of the bridge one can get the most famous sight of the city: El Pilar Cathedral.
