Puente Nuevo, Ronda, Spain

Ronda – Puente Nuevo. Three bridges, Puente Romano (“Roman Bridge”, also known as the Puente San Miguel), Puente Viejo (“Old Bridge”, also known as the Puente Árabe or “Arab Bridge”) and Puente Nuevo (“New Bridge”), span the canyon. The term “nuevo” is a bit of a misnomer, as the building of this bridge commenced in 1751 and took until 1793 to complete. The Puente Nuevo is the tallest of the bridges, towering 120 metres (390 ft) above the canyon floor, and all three serve as some of the city’s most impressive features. The former town hall, which sits next to the Puente Nuevo, is the site of a parador, and has a view of the Tajo canyon. “Wikipedia”

Konitsa’s bridge or Korakou. The singularity of the bridge of Konitsa is due to its huge arch and to its place. This one-arched stone bridge, being one of the biggest in Greece, has a height of 20 m and a length of 40 m. It was erected in 1870-71 paid by the banker I. Loulis from Kastanochoria. Some other donators and habitants of Konitsa participated also to the expenses, raised to 120,000 Turkish piastres. Technician was Ziogas Frontzos from the nearby village of Pyrsogiani. This was a serious effort to bridge Aoos river at this site, because many others had failed. A wooden construction of 1823 was destroyed in 1833. Later a second wooden bridge had the same bad luck.
