History of "Puente Romano" (Roman Bridge)

"Puente Romano" (Roman Bridge) - Puente Romano s/n 14009 Córdoba

This bridge consists of sixteen arches, four pointed arches and the rest semicircular arches, supported by strong abutments with semi-cylindrical elements. At the center of the breastwork there is a sculpture of “San Rafael”, made in the 16th century (1651) by “Bernabé Gómez del Río”. The brick bonds were in Moslem style.

This bridge joins the city with the “Calahorra” castle, and it is said that “Julio Cæsar” could have ordered its construction.

In 918 it suffered great reforms. It was of great importance during the battles that the city fought against the army of “Pedro I el Cruel” (Pedro I the Cruel).
