Photographer's Note

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.
