The Spanish Bridges series continues with two souvenir sheets dedicated to the Roman Bridge in Mérida (Badajoz), and the Pilar Bridge in Zaragoza.

 

The  Puente del Pilar, also known as the Iron Bridge crosses over the River Ebro in the city of Zaragoza. It was built in the late 19th century by the Spanish engineering company La Máquina Marítima y Terrestre specializing in the manufacture of metal bridges in the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was one of the first fixed bridges in Zaragoza since up till then the only fixed bridge in town was the 15th  century Puente de Piedra. In 1991 it underwent a restoration directed by civil engineer Javier Manterola in which two arched side boards were added for the passage of vehicles reserving the central platform for pedestrians. The metal structure was painted in blue and white, the colours chosen in a popular vote.

 

 

The souvenir sheet features the bridge with the city in the background and the Basilica of Nuestra Señora del Pilar.
