Roman Bridge, Tavira, Portugal

The Roman bridge of Tavira, also known as the "old bridge" is either a 3rd-century Roman bridge restored in the Middle Ages or a bridge built on the site of a Roman bridge in the same period. For this reason, it is also sometimes called the "romanesque bridge". However, its current appearance results from renovations carried out in the 17th century. It was closed to traffic in 1989 when two pillars were destroyed during a flood and, although it was repaired by 1992, it remains a pedestrian bridge.

How to go: You can take bus n. 67 from Faro to get to Tavira.
