Unnamed Roman Bridge

Postby Marcus Minucius Audens » Thu Sep 08, 2016 8:13 pm

Salve Militarium Comrades;
Below is a drawing of a structure that I viewed while visiting in Spain. It seems from what I have been told, that the bridge has been in place over this unnamed river for centuries. It is still used by the people who live in the area. The bridge is obviously of sturdy construction and has held up well during the spring freshets, if the surrounding sand bars and channels are any indication. The bridge seems to be constructed along the same lines as the Pont Julien Bridge, but the use of smaller stones, and a straight top surface, with two large bastions, one at each end of the bridge, indicates a different structure style. I thought that you might be interested. Comments??

This is an old Roman Bridge without a name which crosses one of the many rivers draing from the mountains in eastern Spain.
