An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Roman Bridge over the River Galindon


The Romans left their mark on San Nicolas del Puerto, which can be seen today in the significant remains still to be found, the best known being the 'stone bridge' over the River Galindón.

The Roman bridge of San Nicolás del Puerto is considered one of the oldest constructions in the region. It crosses the River Galindón, which flows into the town and forms a pool and river beach, becoming a popular attraction during the summer season. This place was created by building a small dam across the river and attracts numerous visitors every year.

The dam causes the river to form an extensive pool of more than 300 metres in diameter making it an excellent place for bathing and cooling down, offering a pleasant relief from the high summer temperatures.

It has both stairs and disabled access for bathing. In addition, the visitor can relax and enjoy restaurant services in the beach bars by the river beach, such as La Posada del Peregrino, La Gruta and El Bosque.
