Bridges

English

It is an important medieval stone bridge with 16 eyes, based on another of Roman origin that has been continuously repaired and preserved (the last works have been executed in 2016).


It is located in a bifurcated zone giving way to two channels of the Douro River separated by a central island, so it is a very long bridge whose dimension reaches 200 meters and 8 meters wide.


The oldest references date from 1519, and may even have a tower for the control of the pontazgo (tax to use the bridge) and, as we have seen with the other bridges, suffer innumerable repairs throughout its existence.


Next to the bridge there is a quannago that served a mill complex (today converted into a mini power plant). It is currently a very busy bridge, since it is the only bridge that joins the two banks of San Esteban de Gormaz.
