Roman Bridge, Merida

Experience a piece of history at Roman Bridge, the longest surviving bridge from ancient times, which crosses the Guadiana River. The architecture of the bridge is a highlight for visitors, featuring sixty half-moon arches. You can cross the bridge on foot to the park on the other side, and visit the Alcazaba of Mérida, a Moorish fortification. This site is particularly beautiful at sunrise or sunset.
