We didn’t walk through the bridge. Instead, we viewed the bridge through the Arabic fortress which one of the tower provided a great view of the whole bridge.

Walking over the longest bridge in the Roman Empire is a great way to arrive in the beautiful city of Mérida.

First built in 29 AD- added to over the centuries. Visigoths, Romans, Islam, Christians, Napoléon- the English blowing part of it. Still functioning- still a long walk over the river. Beautiful and evocative.

This is a very long Roman Bridge, perhaps one of the longest in existence. Naturally over the she's other societies have added to it. It is free to walk on, with no car traffic, and in a pleasant setting.

It's a huge roman bridge, built many centuries ago. It's for pedestrians only. It's a magnificent example of roman influence and engineering in Merida.

This beautiful bridge was originally two and later generations joined it to make the longest, still standing Roman bridge in the world. It is a testament to the Roman engineers who designed it that it still stands today and carried vehicular traffic until 1991 and...More
