Don't miss the extraordinarily powerful spectacle of the Puente Romano over the Río Guadiana. At 792m in length with 60 granite arches, it is one of the longest bridges built by the Romans. The altogether more modern Puente Lusitania , a sleek suspension bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava, mirrors it to the northwest. The best views of the bridge are from the southwestern ramparts of the Alcazaba.
