The Romans built to last. The aqueduct just outside Nerja is not as large as that the Gard river in France, but it was equally important as a means of supplying water to the inhabitants.

The Roman Bridge visit was during a day walk in this beautiful area around Canillas de Albieda. Returning October/November later this year (2016).

The bridge itself is nothing wonderful. I've seen better ones many times. But the setting is lovely and the walk from Finca el Cerrillo (across the hill from where we live) to Competa is fantastic. Every time I do this walk, I see something different: small birds by the river, almost-ripe figs on the trees, wildflowers and orchids in spring.... More

The literal low point of this fun short (4 mile) walk. Ancient Roman bridge with hand rail supported cobbled paths down to and up from.

Don't do this walk expecting a world heritage site at the end of it. Do this walk to travel through history in the footsteps of goat herds, Romans, Moors and rural Spaniards. Start below the burial ground in Canillas. You will see the old zig zag Roman track clearly from here. Down past the goat shed and through the olive... More

If you are looking for the Authentic Andalucia, these areas are the right for you. Historic bridge that is kept very well. Nice mountain-background.

We crossed this bridge several times on walks, not much to see but approached by a old mule track that goes down from Canillas to the bridge and continues up the other side. If not a walker you can drive and park
