The Puente Romano (Roman bridge) over the Río Guadiana carried cars as recently as the early 90’s before being retired to pedestrian use only. It remains the longest surviving ancient bridge and from the entrance, at the park, it is over 400m to the other side.

The Road:

Once over the bridge the camino immediately turns left to follow a path along the river, avoiding altogether any meaningful entrance into the city of Mérida.
