“Fantastic!”
Review of Roman Bridge

Roman Bridge
Ranked #2 of 44 things to do in Merida
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 June 2018

In reality two bridges with an island in the middle. We walked to the halfway point and gave up as the weather was too chilly (!) in the Frying Pan of Spain! Beautifully built and rebuilt after the allied troops blew a bit up to stop the French assault during the Napoleonic Peninsular War.

it's a pleasant walk over this long, impressive Roman bridge. and if you feel like, you can take the way off in the middle and wonder around the island. all very pleasant, car free.

Good photos can be had from the ramparts of the adjacent Alcazar. This gives you a nice shot of the new bridge down the river as well.

That a bridge of this scale, built by the Romans, still exists and is still in constant use on a daily basis by the citizens of Merida is truly amazing. The quality of the building is a testament to those early engineers and the men who built it.

A long hot walk to the other side and back jn the heat of the day...thete are no cafes, bars or toilets....so best to enjoy with a bottle of water in hand in the early evening.
