Photo: Puente Romano Bridge Rio Guadalquivir Cordoba Andalusia Spain

The Puente Romano (bridge) is an extremely old structure which was built during the time of the Romans under Augustus to span the Rio Guadalquivir. Located in the city of Cordoba, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This ancient bridge is 225 metres long and spans the Rio Guadalquivir (river) in 16 arches in the city of Cordoba, Andalusia, Spain. Even though this bridge was built so long ago, and it has been preserved and well looked after, none of the arches are the original ones anymore; the bridge has undergone several renovations in order to keep it up to safety standards, but this bridge today is still in the original position that the very first one was built during the reign of Emperor Augustus, who ruled from 27 BC to AD 14.

The bridge has now been renovated a number of times; once around the third century BC, when the Moorish people lived in Spain, again after the Spanish people reclaimed the land from the Moors, and then again at the beginning of the 20th century, and in 2006 the Spanish government decided to make this a pedestrian only bridge. ... continue below the picture...
