Ponte do Flecheiro a new bridge in Tomar, Portugal

This is once again Ponte do Flecheiro, which of course is a bridge located in an area of Tomar, called Flecheiro. Though I am from Tomar, when I last visited my home town about 12 years ago, this bridge didn’t exist as it was only inaugurated in December of 2008. So when I shot these pictures, everything I was seeing was new to me. In fact these area was basically inaccessible when I used to live in Tomar as it was covered with vegetation and in the middle ages it was a vegetable garden called Horta Del Rey, serving the Castle of Tomar.
