About Salamanca Roman Bridge
The Salamanca Roman Bridge (Puente Romano de Salamanca) is a picturesque stone arched bridge said to date back to the first century AD. This would place it in the reign of Marcus Ulpius Traianus, when the bridge was part of the ‘Plata’ or ‘silver’ route between Merida and Astorga.
Much of the Salamanca Roman Bridge was rebuilt in the 18th century, but its city-side arches remain original.
