Roman Bridge : Michelin's recommendations
This magnificent work of art was built under Trajan in 106AD using large blocks of granite and no cement. It is 194 m long and the height of the central arch reaches 70 m, protecting it from the very highest tides. The little temple built at one of the ends and the triumphal arch in the centre are also Roman.
