1. Puente de Piedra

Show sight on map

Zamora Stone Bridge is one of five bridges across the Douro River through the provincial capital city of the same name. For centuries, it was the city's only river passage, connecting the suburbs with the city's historic center. At present, it is the connecting point between Vigo Avenue and Bethlehem Square. Because of its position on the silver track, it is an important place for people, goods and nomads to pass through the Douro River. Built in the early 12th century, it has been renovated many times and is now one of the most representative symbols of the city. Many of the decorative elements of the bridge underwent fundamental changes during interventions carried out in the early 20th century, with two towers flanked by the bridge entrance removed to make it easier to access growing road traffic. Many decorations and ornaments on the bridge disappeared in this profound reform. Only the original stone material is left: the main arch and the vault of the pile, although these are consciously decorated. The bridge is part of the Silver Jacob route. Historically, it was part of the Roman road, known as iter ab emerita asturicam. In the following centuries, it was an important passage for people, goods and nomads to pass through the Douro River. The opening of the so-called Poet Bridge in 2013 made it a footbridge.
