Another view of the Roman Bridge in the Spanish city of Cordoba, this time captured as night falls.

The Roman Bridge in Cordoba, Southern Spain, was originally built in the early 1st century BC across the Guadalquivir river, though it has been reconstructed at various times since. Most of the present structure dates from the Moorish reconstruction in the 8th century.

The bridge was built by the Romans in the early 1st century BC, perhaps replacing a previous wooden one. After the Islamic reconstruction, it now has 16 arcades, one less than originally. It has a total length of 247 meters and a width of around 9 meters.
