The Queralt Bridge, also known as Sant Francesc Bridge or Calla Bridge, is located on the river Mèder, at the height of the Santa Isabel Square.

Supposedly, this bridge was built between the 11th and 12th centuries to join the old portal of Queralt with the other bed of the river Mèder.

This bridge is made up of four semicircular arches of different dimensions. In order to lighten the weight, there are three open semicircular arches between the arches.

During the Spanish Civil War, just before Franco’s troops occupied the city of Vic on 1 February 1939, this bridge was blown up by Republican troops. This blast affected the arch located to the north of the bridge. The intention of the republican troops was to slow down the entry of Franco’s troops into the city of Vic.
