Spectacular Roman bridge in the middle of Ourense. Easy to locate and easy parking. Nice small park beneath the bridge.

On our way to Galicia from Portugal we came to pass by Ourense. The nice city as we enter passing over the River Minho.was an experience seeing the two contrasting structure. Great contrast. Great city. A pity we did not make a stop over.
