"Roman Bridge" Roman Bridge - Ponte Velha - Ponte Romana Tip by Willettsworld

When I visited Silves, I parked my car on the other side of the river from the town and walked over this bridge. It's said to date from the Roman era as traces of a Roman road were found nearby. However, the existing structure may date from Arab rule but it was then reconstructed in the 15th century.

Directions: Across the Rio Arade, south-west of the road bridge.
