Small bridge crossing to the Island of Mouchão in Tomar

The small Island of Mouchão (Ilha do Mouchão) is a beautiful place to visit and enjoy in my home town Tomar, and there are three ways to go there, one of them through this bridge that crosses the street Rua Marquês de Tomar to the island park. Of course the island is surrounded by Nabão River as it passes through Tomar. In one of these photos you can also see a partial view of the water wheel of Mouchão Park (Roda do Mouchão) which has been there for ages. There were probably water wheels like this in Tomar in the 19th century or even before.

I have crossed this bridge many times, even when I was a kid and used to go swimming at the pool Vasco Jacob on the other side Mouchão Island. In fact I had to cross two bridges, this one and another one made of wood.
