I love this bridge, more before some idiots put up guard railings....probabaly EU regs. But this was part of a trail where Roman soldiers in the Second Century traversed through this area.

I lived with joy for years above the Puenta de la Romana, the Roman Bridged, to which I often daily walked to start my day. This was built so Roman soldiers could trek from one fortress or encampment to another. If you stand on the...More

The area has plenty of amazing trails with much better views than the short one with the old small bridge. But if you live nearby, why not go for a short walk here.

Don't do this walk expecting a world heritage site at the end of it. Do this walk to travel through history in the footsteps of goat herds, Romans, Moors and rural Spaniards. Start below the burial ground in Canillas. You will see the old zig...More
