This Roman bridge was built under emperor Augustus and spans over the Guadalquivir River. It leads directly into the Mezquita Mosque.
Once a part of an important Roman commercial and military route, the bridge played a key role in protecting the city against attacks. Today, it is a promenade with one end dressed to introduce the new town with the Calahorra tower, and the other end connecting to the old quarter.
Crossing the bridge allows wonderful views of the historic city walls, the Mezquita Mosque and Cathedral, the remains of a Moorish mill, and the Triumphal Arch.
