Beautiful Bridges

I mentioned the river Turia being diverted in my last post about Valencia and one of the results of that is that all the bridges that used to cross the river now of course cross the park and you actually get to walk under them
.....not something you can usually do with a river running through it!! LOL
Here is a taste of some of them

One of the modern bridges (Puente de las Flores or Bridge of Flowers)


One of the ancient bridges (Puente del Mar).......love that one lots :)))....it has a circular shallow pool underneath it...very moorish.


Another modern bridge (Puente de la Exposicion)

A statue on another ancient bridge (Puente del Real)

I'll be posting more Valencian pictures soon.

  1. I love the contrast between old and modern!! Nice to see some lovely blue sky (looking out at a totally cloudy sky here as I type!)
