Description:

The Puente de Toledo (Toledo Bridge) is often considered the prettiest of Madrid's historic bridges. The nine-arch bridge was built of granite in a Baroque style during the 18th century by Pedro de Ribera. Its most outstanding features are the ornate granite shrines: one of Madrid's patron saint, San Isidro, and the other of Santa María de la Cabeza. Only pedestrian traffic is permitted on the bridge.
