Bridge of La Rochapea or Curtidores

It should be pointed out that this bridge is of Mediaeval origin, although successive alterations make it impossible to establish its date of construction. It was modified to widen it and allow for road traffic. Its construction would appear to be linked to the creation of the Rochapea district and there are documents recording it which predate the XVIII century. In days of old, tanners used to hang skins over the bridge to dry out, giving rise to its other name (‘Curtidores’ is Spanish for ‘Tanners’). During the San Fermin fiestas, it is used to lead the bulls from the Gas Corral to the Santo Domingo Corral on the eve of each Bull Run.
