An interesting and historical spot is the Spanish Arch. While small in stature the interesting history is there. While on a little window shopping on Shop Street, at the bottom is the bridge and Spanish Arch, often referred to as "Sparch" by the younger generations 😀, who would indulge in a little day drinkies by the corrib river on the occasional sunny warm days. While today was cool and overcast, u still enjoyed the spot and cultural side of galway. …

The arch is located at the bottom on quay street on the banks of the river. Plenty of activity in the area by way of restaurants and bars. Id consider this more of a meeting point than an attraction so to speak.

This a sample of 16th century Galway construction attached to some medieval wall. It is another reminder of earlier history.

Down by the harbor, this is a stone wall that was built by the Romans. There is a museum nearby. The wall is amazing because of its age, and the whole area is beautiful. The museum is excellent, too.

The Spanish Arch dates from medieval times, at least since the Norman Conquest, perhaps earlier. No-one seems to know for certain why it is called "Spanish," It's near the river, the surrounding area is quite lively The Spanish Arch is a "been there, done that" sort of place.
