Caldas de Reis is an important crossing point on the Camino Portugués. there the stage that begins in Pontevedra ends, and upon arrival the pilgrims can dip their feet in the hot springs. Be careful, not all the waters of Caldas are thermal. The Bermaña River, which crosses the town, has water at the normal temperature of a river. Much better than putting your feet in it, is to cross it through the Bermaña bridge. 

The Roman heritage of Caldas de Reis

Caldas de Reis has an undeniable reminiscence of Roman times, which occupied this territory for centuries. Part of the legacy that is preserved today is of an architectural nature, and there are several bridges that cross the town. The entrance bridge to Caldas is the largest and crosses the Umia River, but the Bermaña bridge should not go unnoticed for that.

This Roman bridge is named after the river it crosses. It consists of three semicircular arches and still preserves remains of the old pavement. The rest of the roadway and the upper masonry are of modern times. On one of its sides there is a medieval cross. Hundreds of pilgrims have crossed it to continue on their way to Santiago. 

It is a small bridge, but it is also an emblematic symbol of Caldas de Reis and well worth a visit. Before being a crossing point on the Camino de Santiago, it was part of the Antoninian Itinerary, related to the Roman emperor Caracalla.
