"Ponte de Lima, bridge over the Lima" Ponte do Lima Favorite Tip by Martin_S.

Ponte do Lima General: 7 reviews and 15 photos

Favorite thing: When visiting Ponte de Lima, the town, take time to walk across the Ponte de Lima bridge for which the town in named. There is a story about the Roman general and his first crossing of the river that you will hear when you are there.
Some very nice views down this quiet river from the bridge, a pity that they made a huge parking lot just off the bridge and adjacent to the river.
But as you can see from the last photo here, the river is not always calm and tame. That top mark, from 1909 is above my head and even above my outstretched arms...and it is located in the center of town where the Lima river flooded...

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
