Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Northern Portugal / Viana do Castelo District / Ponte de Lima / Ponte Romana
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.

I love the legend about this dear old place, and think about it every time I walk across it to and from the village. It's a great vantage point for photos, and I can get mesmerized watching the fish and ducks passing by in the water s flowing below.
Beautiful bridge, amazing photoshoot location, ideal place to go for a walk with your family and/or partner or even by yourself. It's part of long routes, if you are feel like walking a lot, bring comfortable shoes to explore it.
