Old Bridge over the Nabão River

Tomar

Information

The Tomar’s Old Bridge, also known as Dom Manuel Bridge, is one of the symbols of the beautiful town of Tomar, in the Central region of the Country.

Built over the lovely Nabão river, an affluent of the great Zêzere river that crosses the Tomar city, the origins of this bridge are unknown.

It is thought that it might have been built over or with vestiges and materials of an ancient Roman bridge, or even to have been founded in the Roman occupancy period, and restored thereafter.

The Bridge is located next to the lovely Santa Iria Convent, and is still nowadays one of the main accesses to the gorgeous Tomar historic centre.

The Old Bridge has suffered some transformations over the centuries, like in 1480 and 1550, as well as in 1710 when the king John the 5th decorated it with a statue of Saint Christopher (nowadays present in the Convent of Christ).
