The flawless engineering, the graceful Roman arches supporting the bridge and the stonework that survives 2,000 years of use is amazing. It was used by traffic until 1991 and continues to be used as a pedestrian crossing from one bank to the opposite bank. It...More

What a sensation, to walk along a (1 km long) Roman bridge, that is still holding up! A nice stroll across the bridge, to see the Guadiana River. Just lovely. Highly recommended when in Mérida.

This is quite a nice pedestrian bridge across a wide span of river, with good connections to parks below. We walked from the Alcazar across the bridge and back, which is a very nice stroll! Amazing to consider that the Romans built it long ago.

The old Roman bridge is a great example of construction from Roman times. It is well worth a walk along the river and across the bridge. A nice surprise in a small town.

A cliche but one feels like one is stepping back through the centuries. You can't drive over the bridge but worth crossing it.
