Puente de Segovia Details

Puente de Segovia is the oldest bridge in the city and has an interesting history, having been built in 1582. The bridge is made of granite and has nine arches and pillars. It is a place with a very interesting history and is great to look at as well, best of all it is free of charge and open all of the time, although it is better to see it in daylight.The bridge has undergone many changes since it was first built. First, it was repaired and some gates added, which were later removed. It was then blown up in a war and then rebuilt. It was widened, and then later it was further adapted to make way for a motorway.
