Favorite thing: The older bridge - the Puente Viejo - built in the 16th century (but probably on remnants of an earlier bridge) was formerly the one navigable link between Mercadillo and La Ciudad until the completion of the new bridge - the Puente Nuevo. Its a striking view looking up to it - note the balconied niches on the bridge itself were introduced as part of restorations in the 18th century.
Just like the new bridge is was built to join the Moorish settlement with the new quarter that had grown up around the small market place, now known as Padre Jesus, after the conquering of the city.
