Ponte de Vilela

Although difficult to date, the construction of this bridge can be between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries considering the respective technical and constructive characteristics and judging by the references in the Parish Memories of 1758. However, it may have been built in the period of growth of needs of circulation in the region during the 13th century, with the strong demographic expansion, the Crusades, pilgrimages and increasing mobility of the population. Featuring four perfect round arches, their typology is inspired by the Roman constructions.
