The old bridge of Tomar at Night

This is the old bridge of Tomar (Ponte Velha) at nighttime, which crosses Nabão River from Rua Marquês de Pombal to the intersection of Rua Everard (Levada) Rua Serpa Pinto (Corredoura) and Rua Marquês de Tomar. These two areas of Tomar linked by the bridge are the parishes of Santa Maria dos Olivais and São João Baptista and I remember that when as a young kid I lived for about two years at São João Baptista parish, people used to call the other side para além da ponte (in portuguese), which means beyond the bridge.
