The Pont Romà

There is one bridge on the island that can claim a history of about 2,000 years. It is called the Pont Romà, and you can find it in Pollença.

The bridge crosses the Torrent de Sant Jordi which might well have been a proper river at the time of the Romans, considering that the added breakwater reinforcement was quite obviously thought indispensable.

The current state of preservation of the Pont Romà is surprisingly good, considering its age, and in particular the narrow, cobbled road across the bridge. Why not stroll across it, next time there is an autumnal torrent washing down from the Tramuntana mountains?

The photo was taken in Pollença, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 3rd, 2008. The time was 17:18:33.
