People crossing the bridge “Ponte de D. Manuel I” in Tomar

These photos show us a busy bridge in the City of Tomar, being crossed by lots of people. This is the Old Bridge of Tomar, apparently built by the Romans, but it is also called Ponte de D. Manuel I (Bridge of King Manuel I) because this Portuguese King ordered the bridge to be repaired at the end of the 15th century and again in the middle of the 16th century. The fist two photos were taken on a busy weekend during some cultural events in Tomar but the third was shot on a normal weekday.
