Photographer's Note

In 137 bcDecimusJuniusBrutus reached north Portugal and the River Lima. The crossing of this river by the Roman army was a favourite topic among Greek and Roman writers. The first reference was made by Titus Livius(Livy). Strabo also mentioned the episode: Lethes, quemalliLimaem, alli Belionem appelat.

Emperor Augustus ordered an eight-arch bridge to be built over the River Lima, near the mansio Limia, in other words, the modern Ponte de Lima.
