El puente Farnesio y la toma de Amberes

Después de muchísimos trabajos y esfuerzos, en febrero de 1585 el puente Farnesio fue concluido. Este puente en el ancho Escalda era el pilar de la estrategia de Alejandro Farnesio para conquistar Amberes. La ciudad de Amberes estaba en las orillas del caudaloso Escalda y este mismo río permitía a Flandes auxiliar a la ciudad en el asedio español. También estaban en contra de los españoles los castillos de Lillou y Lieskensek, que ayudaban en su protección.
Antes de rendirse en su objetivo, Farnesio puso en marcha la construcción de un puente y por supuesto, de todas las fortalezas y elementos de defensa del mismo. También se usaron barcas para proteger el puente desde el agua. Cuando el puente fue concluido, Alejandro de Farnesio, Duque de Parma, capturó un espía y le dijo: "Anda y di a los que te enviaron que este puente, o ha de ser sepulcro de Alejandro Farnesio, o ha de ser su paso a Amberes".
Finalmente, Amberes no hizo honor a su fama de inexpugnable y los 800 metros de largo por 4 de ancho del puente sirvieron para tomar Amberes por parte de los Tercios Españoles. Esta campaña, sirvió finalmente para que Felipe II le otorgara el Toisón de Oro a Alejandro Farnesio por su fidelidad y valor.
