Canfranc - Pon Nou

Canfranc - Pon Nou
"Pon Nou" means "New Bridge" - this structure replaces an older bridge. The older bridge had been destroyed by a flood of the Rio Aragon and this one was built in 1599, but looks much older. Actually the Pon Nou is "signed". There is a stone inscription, telling us "RAMON ME FECIT 1599"

Really built in 1599? And it´s known there was another bridge before which is gone because of flooding? Amazing.

Does not look so new, the new bridge. Could as well be roman... :D

This arched bridge indeed looks older than it is actually. The Pon Nou, Ramon the architect designed in 1599, was not state of the art - but still is pretty robust.

It stood for about 500 years and hopefully shall still be standing in another 500.
A great region !
