Alcalá de Guadaíra – Carlos III Bridge
Puente de Carlos III (Carlos III Bridge)
The Carlos III Bridge is located on a section of the Guadaira River where several paths have converged since medieval times. Even though it is popularly known as the Roman Bridge, its original construction is believed to have been carried out after the s. XV. According to documentary and bibliographical sources, most of the bridge construction comes from a reconstruction carried out at the end of the s. XVIII after being in a dilapidated state as a result of a flood. The typology of the breakwaters and their auctions indicate a chronology of the Modern Age. At the beginning of the s. XX the section of the bridge was extended, the stone parapets were eliminated and a wrought iron railing was installed.
