Ponte de Lima is bathed by the River Lima. In sunny days like the one we visited Ponte de Lima, the river provides a pleasant view and a quiet place to take a stroll through the path that runs along the river. I even managed to see some ducks (when I was standing on the Bridge) playing in the water. :-)
The bridge has a large pedestrian walking, so take a stroll along the bridge, you won't regret it. It will provide beautiful views over the town itself and over the other side of the river, where you will find some curious churches and nice parks.
The Roman Bridge names this lovely town. Ponte de Lima means something like Lima's Bridge. Lima is the name of the river that baths the city. This roman Bridge was originally built with 5 arches. Later, in the 14th and 15th centuries some other arches were added. The Roman bridge is the town's ex-libris and can be seen from far away (see the photo).
