Remembering the Past: Historic Bridges
Challenge has finished
There are many really interesting bridges in the world. In this challenge, I am not looking for covered bridges as that would be a challenge to itself. They can be beautiful or broken down but should exhibit some character. Please tell where the bridge is located and the age if you know it. You can do that in the title or description.

Although this site is thought to have been used in Roman times to cross the Sella River, a factor possibly leading to the establishment of Cangas de Onís as the first capital of the Kingdom of Asturias, the current 'Roman Bridge' dates from mediaeval times, probably from the late 13th century. Its stylised and graceful forms and the design of the arches recall the Romanesque style in transition to Gothic. It has three slightly pointed arches; by far the largest is the central cambered arch under which the river flows. The two side arches are of different sizes. A reproduction of the famous Victory Cross hangs from the central arch; this is a piece of precious metalwork dating from the start of the 10th century whose original is conserved in Oviedo Cathedral.
