Roman Bridge, Córdoba: 23 reviews and 39 photos


One of the most famous contructions in Cordoba.. It was built under Roman Emperor Augustus commands. This large Roman bridge (330 metres long) consists in 16 arches that connects the city with the Torre de la Calahorra. In the middle of the bridge there´s a Statue of Saint Raphael from 1651. The bridge was very important during the Medieval times, when the people protected the city from the attacks of Peter the Cruel. The bridge has been restored several times, the last one in 2006, wich tried to return the original shape.
