What a great way to spend an afternoon on a sunny day. The town of Pont de Lima is very nice with plenty of cafes and shops. Mostly pedestrian with a few truly beautiful tree covered walks. The bridge is beautiful and just across is a nice little church and garden, as well as a toy museum. Take a stroll... More

It is a old bridge created by the Romans. It is wide and long, pedestrians only. From above you can the the Lima river, there are always music playing. A wonderful experience in my opinion

At first I thought that the Roman Bridge was the one that crossed the river in Ponte de Lima. However, I found out that this bridge is not the Roman Bridge. Instead it is the Ponte de Lima Bridge. I was confused at first, but when I found the Roman bridge it was worthwhile! Once on solid ground, on the... More

A world away from Lisbon and the south, this is a highly picturesque village of rather grand houses without any obtrusive 'developments' (though I don't think we need the 'statuary'). The trouble is, of course, that it depends largely on tourism, so in fact is mainly a well-kept museum, an anomoly that affects not just much of Portugal but all... More

Signature attraction of the lovely Ponte de Lima village. The village also has a nice market with local products and very good restaurants (apart from one or two tourist traps). There is a big parking free ground right in the centre on the edge of the river, making a visit easy, comfortable and pleasurable.

This was my second time back in Ponte de Lima and I cannot help but be amazed by the medieval Roman bridge. I loved taking pictures of the arches under the bridge and the reflections made on the water.
