I am a citizen of Alcoyano and I photographed this pretty bridge but I decided to take some photographs in a completely different way, something more artistic, and where the bridge stayed in the background. Incidentally I encourage and invite people to come to Alcoy, is a beautiful city with many bridges and beautiful architecture in the downtown area. People usually visit for the festival of San Jorge de Moros y Cristianos, an international tourist attraction that is a pure spectacle (if you're interested search for videos on youtube).
Built between 1828-1838 it was the first major public work in Alcoy and it improved communications. The bridge was named Maria Cristina (as a tribute to Maria Cristina Bourbon Dos Sicilies, fourth wife of Ferdinand VII). The bridge is medievalist in style and combines the use of rough blocks of stone and fine limestone. Its maximum height is 27 meters above the Riquer riverbed, at the point where you start heading to Tints.
The Partida dels Tints appeared in this area around the XIX century, at the mouth of the river Riquer where the first construction began for hydraulic facilities for textile mills of Alcoy. The wealth of water sources in the area were used by industries for dyeing fabrics, etc. The factories have moved so this river area has been restored and transformed into a walk. Although I recall fireplaces scattered throughout the canyon reminiscent of the city's industrial history.
