The Roman Bridge, Cordoba, Spain

Just before exiting Cordoba we paused to have a good look at the Roman Bridge. We were actually wonder struck looking at the mighty structure existing from 1st century BC. Beneath the Roman Bridge, tamed for centuries by this bridge, River Guadalquivir silently flowed by.

The arches seemed most majestic; there are 16 of them. This Roman Bridge has undergone several reconstructions and renovations over the centuries. Only 14 and 15th arch belongs to the original structure. Those are typical Moorish architectural style and add to unusual beauty of the bridge

Total length – 247m
Width – 9m.
