Description:
It stands on the River Tormes. This bridge in Salamanca (Castile and Leon) was built in the 1st Century. The passage of time and the numerous river floods damaged part of the bridge. In the 17th century Philip IV ordered the rehabilitation of the damaged section. The solid bridge is part of the Vía de la Plata, one of the three Roman roads that linked Emerita Augusta (Merida) with Cesar Augusta (Astorga). From it one can see a magnificent view of the cathedral and the riverbanks of the Tormes.
Climate:
The climate is overall continental Mediterranean, with an average temperature of 3 º C in January and 25 º C in July. With 580 mm of annual rainfall, without ever exceeding 400 mm in the capital, Salamanca. Salamanca’s terrain is divided in two different areas: the foothills of Spain’s central mountain range in the south, that include the Béjar mountain range- with the mountains Calvitero and Tocón-, the Sierra de Francia mountain range – that includes Sequeros, Velero and Linares- and the Sierra de Gata; and the Campo Charro peneplain.
