Long Description:
It is now located just south of Tôr (Loulé), in Quarteira river. The bridge of Álamos. was also part of this Roman road.

This bridge is often considered as a Muslim or even sixteenth century (by Dom Sebastião), even though there are two round arches, typical in the Roman construction.

The current explanation for the presence of a Portuguese coat of arms is due to restoration work that has been exposed in the fifteenth century if not in the High Middle Ages.
