Tas Kopru, Adana

Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
Taşköprü (Italian: Ponte in pietra, English: Stone bridge), historically known as Ponte Sarus, is a Roman bridge spanning the Seyhan River in Adana that was probably built in the first half of the second century AD. The bridge was a key link in ancient trade routes from the Mediterranean Sea to Anatolia and Persia. Until its closure in 2007, it was one of the oldest bridges in the world open to motorized vehicles. Since 2007 it has only carried foot traffic, and now hosts social and cultural events.

Among the names used for the bridge during its history are the Saros Bridge, the Bridge of Justinian, the al-Walid Bridge and Taşköprü ("Stone Bridge" in Turkish).

  • This place is amazing. Nature and history is combined in here. Story of the bridge is fascinating.
  • According to the signs there, this bridge is the oldest bridge that is still in use. Views along the bridge is great, but there are a lot of people using the bridge so it can be crowded at times. You also need to watch out for scooters and bikes.
