Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
Sightsee along Ponte Romana, an old Roman bridge spanning the River Lima. Cars are not able to cross the bridge, so you will have to go on foot, but the beautiful views will make you forget any travel-weary feet. The structure was rebuilt in 1362 and is made up of 24 arched vaults. Nearby, check out the quaint village and ask the people about the long local history. Check ahead of time for the market day schedule if you want to see the locals going about their daily lives.
