Discover the Devil's Bridge
One of Martorell's best-known monuments is the Diable Bridge. It is located on the Llobregat river and has a Roman origin. Although its construction dates back to the 1st century BC, over the years it has been redone several times. One of the most important reforms was the one carried out in 1289 and which incorporated unequal pointed arches in the Gothic style. Unfortunately, during the Spanish Civil War some of these arches were destroyed. In 1963 they were rebuilt following their original Gothic design.
