Located right next to the Alcazama this is a beautiful example of Roman design from around 2000 yrs ago, I think. The walks along the river give great views of the bridge and it's a good excuse to stretch the legs too.

A very long bridge, very Game of Thrones, second only to Córdoba bridge in my view. Well worth the visit.

Happened to be driving through this community while traveling with our two dogs and decided to take them for a walk. We walked along several tree-lined beautifully maintained paseos when we came across this Roman bridge. It took our breath away. It is in magnificent condition and heavily used by pedestrians most of whom were locals out for exercise or... More

No trip to Merida is complete without a visit to this bridge and appreciation of how long it has stood and how it was constructed

The bridge starts close to the Alcazaba in the old town's centre. Beside being an impressive structure it also offers the opportunity for a nice walk, preferable in day light.

Lovely Roman bridge, worth the visit, close to the Alcazaba, but don't bother walking to the Moreria, which is further down the same street.

Amongst all the Roman sites in Merida this bridge is still in use! The longest Roman bridge anywhere (so I'm told) it is a sight to behold. Take time to view the whole length of it from off the bridge before walking it - better to appreciate its elegance and the quality of the engineering from about 2000 years ago.

As far as I know, Merida was the Capital of Roman Empire in that region, there are many Roman buildings and bridges, dams. I trully recomend a visit and don't forget to eat black pig or jamon as they call it.

The Roman bridge in Merida is the longest of its kind and you need to walk along it to get a proper sense of that. Highly recommend a visit here.

When you go to the Moorish fortress you will see the bridge right by it. It's really beautiful and worth a stroll on if you have time.
