This bridge was crucial for communicating Híspalis (Seville) and Onuba (Huelva).

The only bridge over the Guadiamar River in the 16th century, it was crucial for communicating Híspalis (Seville) and Onuba (Huelva). This bridge likely dates back to earlier times. Indeed, it may go back to Muslim, or even late Roman or Roman, times. Partially collapsed in 1821, several of the original fourteen arches are still visible. The river no longer flows through here as it was diverted. Nowadays, it is located within the Guadiamar Green Corridor Protected Landscape.
