Photo: Historic Bridge Ancient Roman Architecture

A beautiful evening in the city of Cordoba, the historic bridge is the Puente Romano which spans the Rio Guadalquivir. The design of the ancient arch bridge is Roman architecture.

The Puente Romano spans the Rio Guadalquivir in Cordoba, Spain. Originally, the arch bridge was built after Pompey was taken by Caesar. The bridge features 16 arches and is about 225 meters long.

The ancient bridge has been preserved and restored many times in the original roman architecture. The arches are not the originals but it is still in the original position of the first bridge built. The original bridge was built during the reign of Emperor Augustus, who ruled during 27 BC to 14 AD.

During one of its many renovations, the Moorish people who lived in Spain rebuilt the bridge, though the bridge's construction is based on Roman architecture, 16th century Doric arch.

By decision of the Spanish government, the bridge is now used only by pedestrians. ... continue below the picture...

... At the south end of the bridge is the Torre de la Calahorra. This tower once protected the Puente Romano's entrance.

The Museo Vivo de Al-Andalus, a museum, is now located in the tower and when touring Cordoba, the museum is a great place to start your tour. It is rich in the history of the area along with enjoying the tour in your own language.
