Pont de Pedra de Girona

One of the most emblematic bridges in the city of Girona

If there's one thing that defines Girona it's the river Onyar and the bridges that connect the Barri Vell with the neighbourhood of Mercadal. If you cross these bridges, you can enjoy the sight of the houses that overlook the river, and whose colour changes as the sun sets. One of the more emblematic bridges in Girona is the Pont d'Isabel II (Bridge of Isabel II, during whose reign it was built), which is also known as Pont de Pedra (Bridge of Stone). To make space for it, the medieval bridge of Sant Francesc (or of Framenors) was pulled down. The Pont de Pedra, made using Girona stone, is supported on three lowered arches that rest on two pillars. An inscription in the centre notes that it was inaugurated in 1856. It's the way to cross the river as if you were royalty!
