Roman Bridge


Also known as the “Old Bridge”, it is one of the symbols of Tavira. 

There are divergent theories about its origin, the most likely being the existence of a previous Roman bridge from the 3rd century, which would have been rebuilt, or even built in its place, at the beginning of the medieval period, for which some also call this “Ponte Românica de Tavira” bridge.

Connecting the two banks of the river Gilão, right in the center of Tavira, this bridge has, therefore, undergone several changes over the centuries, remaining in the 17th century with its current appearance. Since 1989, when the great floods took place here, the bridge has been used by pedestrians.
