Pont Vell is the ancient bridge which crosses the Riu de Santa Eulària (Santa Eulària river), the only river on the Spanish island of Ibiza. The bridge stands next to the modern road bridge on the western approach to the town of Santa Eulària des Riu. Today the bridges is only used as a footbridge with all other traffic restricted to the adjacent modern bridge.
It is thought that the bridge is built on the foundations of a much earlier Roman Bridge.
Nowadays, the river is almost completely dried up and runs only half a kilometre, but the walk along the remaining section is beautiful.
Ibiza is one of the Spanish Balearic islands situated off the coast of Spain in the Western Mediterranean.
