6 · The Medieval bridge

It is located on the old road to Pinillos and is built in ashlar stone, highlighting the greatness of its unique arch. It leads to the right bank of the Iregua River and was very important in the past, since there was no other passage until reaching Torrecilla. This bridge allowed reaching Pinillos and thus communicating the basin of the Leza River with that of the Iregua.
It was finished in 1771 and replaced another previous one, which in turn had replaced a former one, which was ruined after the great flood of 1739. It is said that the stonemasons who built it had to leave without being paid because, once the work was finished, the bridge cracked. However, it has remained to the present.
