Hospital de Órbigo is known for its famous medieval bridge (Puente del paso honroso).
It is a medieval bridge from the thirteenth century built over the river Órbigo. It seems too big for what the river is but before the construction of the dam of Barrios de Luna, the river carried a large flow. It has 19 arches and is quite well preserved. Restorations were made at different times. It is a national monument since 1939.
It is set in the ancient Roman road that ran from Leon (Legio Septima Gemina) to Astorga which was in Roman times the capital of the province of Asturica Augusta.
