Historical Review
The bridge at Martorell in Barcelona province (Spain), popularly known as "Pont del Diable" by a legend, and formerly of St. Bartholomew bridge is a bridge of Roman origin (late first century BC.). In the Gothic period, particularly between 1283 and 1295, was rebuilt. Gave way to the ancient Via Augusta, which communicated with Tarragona Gaul, and came to Gades (Cadiz).
The Gothic bridge was restored in 1768 and in 1933, and the triumphal arch in 1928. For nearly twenty centuries has withstood the Llobregat river without suffering serious damage, being very strong construction. Still, during the Civil War in the years 1936-1939, was destroyed and later rebuilt. The final and most substantial remodeling is dated in the early 50's, in charge of the Barcelona Provincial Council. In 1931, Martorell Bridge was declared a National Monument.
Thus, the bridge is the result Martorell, in its current state, a series of reconstructions. Currently only its foundations are Roman original. It consists of two unequal arcs, pointed back with two arches on each side.
Access to the bridge was done by a triumphal arch, now located in the municipality of Castellbisbal, as the river limits of this municipality and Martorell.
