Ponte Romana in Ponte de Lima Portugal is a pretty rounded bridge near Silves Northern Portugal, we stopped to get a selfie with. There is really nowhere convenient to stop to get it directly in a background not the distance. Great walk.

A must see when in Ponte de Lima. Great walk with a view on Lima river. You have several coffee shops at the end of it, on Largo de Camões.

We were located across the river from the main historical part of town. We crossed the Bridge to go touring during the day and again in the evening to dine. The crossing at night is very romantic and beautiful.

The walk across the bridge and a visit to the church is quite nice. You could see some water wildlife like Kingfishers. Takes you back in time and nice and relaxing.
