Puente de Colloto

Bridge of early Roman origin, having appeared a treasure trove of coins in the arch of the central pillar, these coins being from the 4th and 5th centuries. It is located on the old route that from Cantabria communicated with Lucus Asturum. The current work seems to be from medieval times, one of its arches having a pointed shape.

It is a bridge with a slightly rounded profile, with a double ramp from the axis. It is made up of two bridges of different formats, one pointed and the other half-pointed, which rest on a powerful pillar located in the riverbed. The walls are built with irregular masonry worked with lime and sand, using ashlars in the threads of the arches, cutwater, spur and abutments.

This bridge was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 2003.
