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.

The Roman Bridge had a key strategic and defensive role in Merida's past, and used to be linked directly to the Alcazabar (fortress) at the town end. The structure, given its length across a river prone to flooding, is remarkable, and has been changed and...More

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.

Just another site in this amazing town, full of Roman sites. These sites are all within easy reach if each other so you can plan your walk.

Essential while in Merida. Fits into the overall understanding of the significant place Merida has in Spanish and world history.

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

We parked out of town and made our way to the Roman bridge to enter the old town of Merida. The bridge dates back to 25BC and is over a kilometre long. It is a great way to start your visit.

This is certainly a beautiful bridge, especially because it is still fully functional in crossing the river - without any cars! However, only a small part is Roman, the rest is 1,000 years younger. It is hard to tell where the Roman part ends and...More
