Also known as the "Roman Bridge," the span dates back the 1600s, although parts of it have been rebuilt after floods. The bridge crosses the Gilao River and is only used as a pedestrian bridge in current times.

Well trodden bridge and very picturesque from both sides -morning evening in the sunlight.
No traffic aloud across.
Several spans offer small seating areas on the right hand side.
Walkway across to the lovely town and square area, that includes many type shows concerts on during the summer season

Beautiful Old bridge which is one of the very centrepieces of Tavira.
There are 3 bridges that can be walked over to connect both sides of Tavira but this is the oldest and the one stepped in more history.

pics best taken from either bank of the river. Sturdy and wide enough to accommodate lots of people. Arches are beautiful.

A landmark in Tavira, you must cross this bridge when you get to it. The seven arches represent seven knights.

Tavira was a wonderful off the beaten path city to explore. We ate at Ponte Vecchio, outside cafe, and admired the roman bridge. We later used a tuk-tuk and guide to discover the old town. Lots of cute shops. Day trips from here to see the flamingos on Tavira Beach ( we skipped). Lots of ex-pats relaxing and playing mahjong! Very chill, unspoiled city with both Moorish and roman ruins .Additionally the tuk-tuk driver took us to see the salt flts- which were being harvested! Enjoy

The bridge is an excellent starting point for exploring both sides of the river. If like us, you stay in Tavira, you’ll cross it many times.
It’s a wide pedestrian-only bridge, with 7 low long arches and ornate wrought iron railings which seem to have largely escaped the scourge of the padlocks. It crosses the River Gilão and links the main square, Praca da Republica with the bars and restaurants on the other side.
I’m not really sure why it is called the Roman Bridge. It was only built in 1667 so it was a bit of a puzzle. There’s been a bridge on the site since the 13th century but that still doesn't explain the Roman name. In any case, the bridge adds to the historic charm and unspoiled character of the old town. From the middle of the bridge, you get expansive views down the length of the river on both sides.
We often found ourselves stopping mid-way, intrigued by the massive variation in the water level. At high tide, even small boats might only scrape through the arches. At low tide, large areas of rocks emerged and the water barely covered some patches. River-side houses were left with their backdoor staircases suspended in mid-air above the water. At the extreme, the tide can vary by 3 metres.
A blue and white glazed tile plaque at the southern end of the bridge also caught my eye. It commemorates a battle fought sometime during 1383 – 1385 when the men of Tavira and Faro gathered and made a stand here to successfully defend the bridge against King Juan’s forces.
