Caínheiras Bridge

Caínheiras Bridge is a magnificent example of bridges built during the Roman Empire, possibly between the 1st and 2nd centuries.

The Caínheiras Bridge belonged to the Roman road that led to Castro Laboreiro and Porto de Cavaleiros, having witnessed over the centuries the passage of Roman legions, traders on their way to fairs, and even pilgrims.
Built over the Caínheiras river, two round arches stand out from its construction. It has a two-meter wide deck, guardrails formed by vertically laid granite slabs, and a prismatic cut sea. It is a Property of Public Interest.
