Ponte da Vila Formosa in Portugal, a 116 meter long Roman bridge spanning over the river Seda. This bridge, dating to the late 1st century / early 2nd century CE, is one of the best-preserved bridges throughout the Iberian Peninsula. It was located on the way which connected Olisipo (Lisbon) to Augusta Emerita (Mérida, Spain), the via publicae.
