The Roman Bridge and the Guadalquivir River in Cordoba, Spain

I am trying to go back again to this lovely place through the images I captured during our visit lately in Cordoba, Spain. The photo you see here is the Roman bridge of Cordoba in the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. It was built in the early 1st century BC across the Guadalquivir river. This is one of the sights in this beautiful city.

Cordoba was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO last December 1984 due to its extensive historical heritages.

The bridge was built by the Romans in the early 1st century BC, perhaps replacing a previous one in wood. It currently has 16 arcades, one less than original ones, and a total length of 247 meters. The width is around 9 meters.
