A Roman bridge from around 100 CE, crossing the Tâmega River. There are some excellent views of the bridge from the south side. Now closed to vehicle traffic it serves as a pedestrian connection between the two halves of the town.

It's the main monunent of the city. It's well preserved and it provides a pleasant walking. I advice you to visit also the town's main museum so you can better understand the bridge's history.
