One thing you always appreciate about the Romans is the sturdiness and strength of whatever they built, coming down often two millennia to us. There is some Visigoth reconstruction to part of it. The Muslims built the Alcazaba to protect the crossing. The bridge is a main pedestrian artery to cross the Guadiana River.

Beautifully preserved bridge. Take a stroll across the bridge and enjoy a walk by the river. Lovely photo spot.

This is a fabulous Roman bridge and a little more impressive than the one in Córdoba as there is an island in the middle of the river that has extra supports. The best view is from the wall of the Alcazaba. It is lit up in the evening time

As already commented upon this is best viewed from the Alcazaba where you can see all of the spans and the way in which the old Roman road leads away from the town.

Still in this age this is an impressive achievement. The overall effect is one of amazement. What initiative, imagination, and execution to build this structure.

The bridge looks wonderful and shows off the skill of Roman bridge design. Wonderful views along the river to the old mill and beyond. And built in 2004? Beautifully done and a credit to the town.

One of the two longuest Roman bridges in existence (the other in France, the Pont du Gard). Take a stroll on it to enjoy the view the emotion of doing it on such an ancient monument.

The Roman Bridge had a key strategic and defensive role in Merida's past, and used to be linked directly to the Alcazabar (fortress) at the town end. The structure, given its length across a river prone to flooding, is remarkable, and has been changed and strengthened over the centuries.

The bridge carried road traffic until 1991, when the new Lusitania Bridge was opened a few hundred metres away. There are good views of the Bridge from the parapet of the Alcazabar.

As far as I know, Merida was the Capital of Roman Empire in that region, there are many Roman buildings and bridges, dams. I trully recomend a visit and don't forget to eat black pig or jamon as they call it.

This has got to be one of the longest oldest bridges i have walked along.it is well preserved and to think how old it is will make you feel very humble.Great views on both sides of the river Guadiana and also some good walks along the rivers edge.Glad to have done it not only once but 3 times!!
