This is a beautiful old bridge, now pedestrianised over the R Lima. There are a few shops and cafeas well as a beautiful garden and old church on the other side. Well looked after and popular with locals and tourists alike

Amazing structure with so much history. From Ponte de Lima and crossing the bridge you find yourself going back in time. Great to enjoy the beauty of the bridge in day and night

Until the Middle Ages, this was the only bridge crossing the River Lima. It formed part of the Roman military road from Braga to Astorga. The bridge, now enhanced by a more modern extension, is the centrepoint for many tourist attractions in this charming town.

I’m a Peregrino and seen many old bridges on my way and this is perhaps one the the top ones. The history surround it and after all these years still standing is magnificent.

Nice heritage left from ancient civilization. They used to say that who would cross the river would loose their memories. Nice to see among the dozens of people crossing the bridge the pilgrims walking to Santiago.

Especially the very beautiful illumination at night was something really special. Best seen directly from the river banks.

The main symbol of Ponte de Lima, that together with the river names the town, is its bridge. In reality, it’s a composite formed by two bridges: a medieval part, which is bigger, starting on the left bank of the river and stretching to the...More
