The present bridge was built on the site of a former bridge, destroyed by floods. Built in the 18th century by Pedro de Ribera. Made up of nine semi-circular arches and built of granite ashlar stone. Here you can find the Puerta de Toledo, the most recent monumental gate built in Madrid in 1827. The monument consists of a central semi-circular arch, two lintelled gates and a decoration formed by columns, with a set of sculptures high up and featuring the city’s coat of arms.
