Salamanca. Roman Bridge

The fifteen arches nearest the city are Roman whereas the remainder have been rebuilt. Alongside the bridge stands an Iberian stone bull as a representation of pre-Roman Salamanca art of Celtic origin. In the centre the bull which appears on the city’s coat of arms survives; it is a granite sculpture of Celtiberian origin. This bull is also famous for the reference to it in ‘El Lazarillo de Tormes’, a classic work of Spanish literature.
