The Roman bridge after which Ponte de Lima is named was part of the Roman road from Braga to Astorga in Spain. The bridge consists of two segments. The 3-arched segment on the north-bank dates from the Roman times. The 31-arched bridge across the Lima dates from the 14th century and was restored the following century. In between one still sees the square foundations of the so-called Torre Velha (Old Watch Tower), demolished in the 19th century.

Le point de vue au ras de l'eau donne une belle ampleur au pont. La ligne de fuite est impeccable et donne une belle profondeur ŕ l'image.

The ancient bridges have a crazy charm. The point of view and the neatness create the big depth of the photo. The light, the colors, the neatness, the reflection are magnificent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Those Romans where everywhere weren't they? What a beautiful old bridge and you have chosen a fantastic POV for it which demonstrates the incredible perspective and symmetry of it. Love thge colours and you dealt well with the shady areas in the FG and strong sunlit areas in the BG. Great job.
Have a good weekend
