#4 of 9 in Historic Sites in Manavgat
The Eurymedon Bridge was a late Roman bridge over the river Eurymedon (modern Köprüçay), near Aspendos, in Pamphylia in southern Anatolia. The foundations and other stone blocks of the Roman structure were used by the Seljuqs to build a replacement bridge in the 13th century, the Köprüpazar Köprüsü, which stands to this day. This bridge is characterized by a significant displacement along its mid-line, noticeable by looking at its ancient piers.Roman bridgeStructureThe original shape and construction of the Roman-era bridge have been reconstructed digitally, based on the extant remains of the ancient structure: the ramps, the abutments, and foundations of the piers. Several pieces of the original bridge are scattered along the river bed on both banks, and were not used during reconstruction.Originally, the bridge had a length of 259.50 m and a width of 9.44 m, and had nine semicircular arches. It crossed the river at a basic 90-degree angle, although it bent slightly on one end. The two access ramps provide information about the overall height of the structure, and the gradient on each end is similar (12.3% and 12.2%), The midpoint of the bridge was approximately 4.1 m higher than the later Seljuk structure.

  • From Antalya to Alanya, located on the left side of the road on the way to this historic bridge very well restored. But there's a little undernourished for keeper around unfortunately. Condolences citizens around both contaminated and left with a broken bottle. A little more attention and we need to be more sensitive to the environment. Be sure to walk on the spectacular bridge and cross over to stand on the bridge and listen to the power of the water. Very beautiful pictures, it will be a great experience to take.

  • Nice bridge love the history of it and how it was washed away and rebuilt on original foundations even though they had moved in the flood - hence the bend. Lovely views of the river and nearby.
  • Fabulous historic place to visit. Go early in the morning if you are walking the site as it gets very hot. Brilliant photo opportunities, gladiator on site too. Nice well equipped ship and snack bar. Wear flat sturdy closed in shoes. A must see place.

  • It is a Roman-era bridge. The remains of the old bridge again during the Seljuk period has been restored and is open for use. The bridge was the site of the original bridge over the feet of a historical region was the only transportation. between 1960-1970 current after the open road and bridge traffic historic bridges. . Me, by all accounts, the original bridge railings yakalaşık 1 meters in height 30 cm-width have a dangerous situation. A recent restoration has become today and after vehicle traffic. Serik and Manavgat River Bridge, which is on the borderline of the County the bridge was the site of the old tea in the immediate vicinity of the market place due to the establishment of the bridge as it is known in the market or market bridge. The beauty of the surrounding landscape and the historic property and informed that there is a place to see them. Yıılın you can get delicious photos in every season. For souvenir photos, Antalya and the world's most renowned is the most appropriate place because of the location.

  • Nice place serene up! Quiet times allow an hour to sit on the water and maybe a freshly squeezed orange juice from the surrounding Heinen to enjoy... The historical bridge is very pretty to look at...
