Armband for CD Lugo VS SD Huesca
To finish off with our tradition this 2022/23 season, our captain will wear a special armband that has been tailored for the occasion to build bridges between the provinces of Lugo and Huesca – in this case, literally.
The spectacular bridges of Lugo and Capella (Huesca) are the items that bond both provinces together in this case. Both constructions have been depicted in our design. If you wish to know more about this, just continue reading.
Roman Bridge • Lugo
The Roman bridge, built to link Lucus Augusti to Bracara Augusta (Braga) through Iria Flavia (Padron, in Lugo) crosses the Minho River. Built with slate and shale, it is 104 metres long and 4 metres wide. It used to be a very busy bridge, and currently it is only for pedestrians, belonging to several trekking routes, such as Primitive Way of Saint James.
Romanesque Bridge of Capella • Huesca
In this town of Huesca, La Ribagorza, there is a remarkable architectural heritage, among which we can highlight its Romanesque bridge on the Isabena River. It dates back from the twelfth to the fourteenth centuries and is considered as the best-preserved Romanesque bridge in the area, which is why it was declared to be a Site of Cultural Interest. This construction greatly enhanced the ways to link La Ribagorza to its surroundings. Today you can have a stroll on it while enjoying the stunning views over the valley.
Here you can find the most spectacular 10 bridges in the province of Huesca.
