Also known as St. Martin’s Bridge, it is a 13th century old bridge, built across the river Tagus in Toledo Spain. This bridge was built by archbishop Pedro Tenorio to connect the old town in the west to the east. Both end of the bridge has strong towers, supporting the bridge. The striking feature of the bridge is the five arches. The largest one is the middle arch that has a length of 40m, which is a very rare feature to find in any bridge. Apart from this fact, the bridge is a nice tourist spot to get the best view of the city, especially during twilight.

Puente De San Martin Reviews & Ratings
Amazing bridge with fantastic spots for photos or just hanging out. Lots of places to walk from the bridge and to enjoy the scenery in local Toledo. It's not too far of a walk from the train station in Toledo either, so if that's where you're coming from this is one of the best spots to go!
Very nice to stroll across and ascent to the top, for the extra fit. We used the hop on hop off (stop no 7). The next bus was almost 35 minutes ( not 12 to 15 minutes as claimed) so we spent time watching the people cross the river by the rope and pulley adventure.
Great place for a photoshoot. The view is amazing. We were there during the cool of spring so the hilly terrain wasn't a thing. The history of the area is almost overwhelming.
Amazing view of the nature, including the river, mountains and surrounding plants. Perfect for nature lovers. Also you can slide on a wire from one side of the bridge to the other.
Toledo Spain is one for the books. If you live history, churches, friendly faces and good food, this is the place to visit.
