The Arquinho Roman Bridge

Valpaços
Description

The “Arquinho” Roman Bridge is located in Possacos village, situated in the charming Calvo river valley. This historical building probably dates back to the first century A.D., during the territory’s Roman occupation, and would integrate the Roman’s Empire Via XVII, which would link "Bracara Augusta" (Braga) to "Asturica Augusta" (Astorga, Spain). On site were found milestones assigned to Maximino and Maximus emperors, attesting to the historical and archaeological importance of the monument. The bridge is characterized by its 7.5 meters wide plane tray, based on a single perfect round arch. An apparatus in regular rows of marked padded (cushioned) ashlars "forfex". The arch’s base presents protruding ashlars on both sides to support the falsework during construction.
