The Roman bridge of Córdoba is located in the Historic centre of Córdoba (declared a World Heritage Site in 1984), Andalusia, southern Spain. It was originally built in the early 1st century BCE across the Guadalquivir river, though it has been reconstructed at various times since. Most of the present structure dates from the Moorish reconstruction in the 8th century. The bridge was built by the Romans in the early 1st century BCE. It formed part of the Via Augusta which was the entrance to the city of Corduba Patricia.
