Go see this crenelated fortified bridge and imagine how the ruler exacted toll from the passing river traffic.

“Lovely and unusual bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2014

A rather lovely fortified bridge with good views of the castle. A bit of a hotspot for beggars though.

The history surrounding this bridge is incredible. It was great just being to be there as the sun went down and to walk across it.

“Super view of the river and the castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2014

Worth to walk up and down and take lots of picture, expecially during sunset. Kept in perfect state, as well as the castle, it makes you feel back in time.
