A great place to visit

The stone bridge of Zaragoza is an old bridge, built in the twelfth century, which was built to ensure that at any time of year, people could cross the river Ebro. They began building the bridge we see today in the fifteenth century, but there are older parts. There is also a parapet called San Lazaro, and back then it functioned like a wall that kept river water from flooding the city center.

At that time, the city was just located in the old city center, and people passed the bridge just to go to work the fields that were on the other side, or for traveling. The bridge represented a breakthrough at this time, as it was one of the first permanent bridges in the country, and improved the level of communication and trade, making things much easier for people in the region. It also improved conditions for those in the basin of Madrid and the city of Barcelona. It was built in ashlar stone. They were recently restoring the bridge, so it could only be seen from a distance. With the Cathedral del Pilar next to it, it makes for a very nice view of the city.

It 's the oldest bridge across the river Ebro and has been renovated several times over the years because of the floods of the river below. E 'built in Gothic style and unique are the two bronze lions on each side that seem to give notice to patrons not to cross there. The bridge can be crossed only by pedestrians or cyclists and gives an overview on the unique Basilica del Pilar and the rest of the city's riverfront.

E' il ponte più antico sul fiume Ebro ed è stato ristrutturato più volte nel corso degli anni a causa delle alluvioni del corso d'acqua sottostante. E' costruito in stile gotico e particolarissimi sono i due leoni di bronzo per lato che sembrano intimare agli avventori di non varcare quel luogo. Il ponte è percorribile solo dai pedoni o dai ciclisti e concede una panoramica davvero unica sulla Basilica del Pilar e sul resto della città lungofiume.

The stone bridge Zaragoza are an old ancient bridge, built in the twelfth century, to ensure, in any time of the year, the passage of the river Ebro to the inhabitants of the city. We started to build the bridge that we can now visit the fifteenth century, but there are some remains of the first bridge. There is also a dam, which is called the pretil San Lazaro is a kind of wall, which avoided when the water level rose, flooding in the city center. At that time, the city was only one side of the river, but it was still the cross to trade with Barcelona, ​​and to cultivate the land on the other side. The bridge is a major step forward for the city at the time, it was one of the first permanent bridge in the country and in communications and trade, it really made things easier for people and for the Madrid and Barcelona. It is built of stone. Now they are in the process of renovating and can only be seen from afar, with the cathedral in the background of Pilar, one of the most photographed views of the city.

Le pont de pierre de Zaragoza es un vieux pont antique, construit au XIIème siècle, pour garantir, en toute époque de l´année, le passage du fleuve Ebre pour les habitants de la ville. On a commencé à construire le pont que l´on visite aujourd´hui au XVème siècle, mais il reste quelques vestiges du premier pont.

Il y a également une digue, qui s´appelle le pretil de San Lázaro, c´est une espèce de muraille, qui évitait, quand le niveau de l´eau montait, les inondations dans le centre ville. A cette époque, la ville se trouvait seulement d´un coté du fleuve, mais il fallait tout de même le traverser pour commercer avec Barcelone, et pour cultiver les terres de l´autre coté.

Le pont représente une grande avancée pour la ville de l´époque, c´était l´un des premiers ponts permanents du pays, et au niveau des communications et des échanges commerciaux, il a vraiment facilité les choses pour les habitants, ainsi que pour les madrilènes et les barcelonais.

Il est construit en pierre de taille. Maintenant, ils sont en train de le rénover, et on peut uniquement le voir de loin, avec la cathédral du Pilar au fond, une des vues les plus photographiées de la ville.

To my mind, nothing I have to emphasize this bridge ... A small bridge destroyed by a million rough-looking new streetlights, remind you that at present we do not respect anything ....

A mi parecer, nada tengo que destacar de este puente... Un puente pequeño destrozado por un millón de farolas nuevas de aspecto basto, que te recuerdan que en la actualidad no respetamos nada....
