Lovely stone bridge spanning the Ebro River. A set of bronze lions at the bridge entrance are quite impressive. Vehicular traffic is minimal, but be sure to exercise caution. A wide pedestrian sidewalk lines both sides of the bridge. The views overlooking the river and cityscape (especially the towers of Basilica de Pilar) are fantastic especially with the changing light throughout the day/evening.

The 225-meter Stone bridge was built in the XV century on the site of the former bridge. The arch bridge is built according to all the rules. Its massive pillars, reminiscent of the tower have even breakwaters. It is hard to believe, looking at the shallow Ebro, that two spans were swept away by a flood in 1643. The spring flood quickly comes and goes carrying away a couple of arcades... Flood control also explains the strengthening of the embankment in 1789, which is a single architectural complex with the bridge now. Previously, the towers stood in front of the bridge, they were demolished only in 1906. Lions by the sculptor Francisco Rallo Lahoz were installed on the original plinths in 1991. It seems to me that to choose the best point for photographing the bridge you need to go down from the embankment to the water. Then it looks more medieval...

Yes, old but nothing comparing to bridges in Paris, Vienna, Prague or Budapest.

Nice view at the Cathedral, that I liked. I liked that that much that I woke up earlier the next morning and went down to take some pictures before the crowd. See below.

Bridge in itself is nothing out of the ordinary but the view of the Pilar is almost magical, especially at night or sunset/sunrise.

This stone bridge “Puente de Piedra” is built on the same place of the formal “Puente Romano”, but the actual bridge is in the “Gothic” style and dates from the XVth century, and being so she is the oldest conserved stone bridge crossing the river “Ebro”. The bridge has suffered during history from allot of damage caused by the high water levels of the river, and so has got allot of restauration works. They call this bridge also the “Puente de los Leones” or the Bridge of the Lions”, this due to the fact of the two statues of a lion made out of Bronze, they have being realized in the year 1991 by the sculptor Francisco Rallo. The lion statues were decorating the head of the bridge until the XX century and were the symbol of the city.

From this you have the best view of the city of Zaragoza. No wonder its the symbol the this place. Destroyed many times by floods this bridge has resurrected many times.

Spent a rainy, windy afternoon walking around Zaragoza and this bridge with the 2 lions guarding it has very nice views of the giant Cathedral, great place to take photos. There is plenty of place to walk and stop to take pictures. The river was flooded and the rushing torrent was fun to watch from the middle of the bridge. The high wide stone parapet feels very safe.

Lion statues guard each end of this stone bridge over the River Ebro. The bridge itself provides interesting perspectives of the cathedral, the leaning tower and other parts of the old city; whilst also looking towards newer bridges over the river.
There is a very pleasant river-side walk leading to the bridge from the river bank opposite the cathedral.

We used the bridge to leave the city side of the Ebro and walk along the other bank back to the hotel tghrough more attractive areas. Yes the lion statues are big and impressive and you get a good view back to the river frontage of the basilica and other main buildings. Thats about it

Wonderful site beautiful shops along the way to getting here. I enjoyed the walk over the bridge too. The city is filled with old charm and character. Accommodation was not expensive at all and I managed to buy a tshirt at a reasonable price. Many markdowns at this time of the year and a lot of stuff made in the country of Spain so not many chinese imports which i like.
