Aspendos Bridge, Side

4.0
#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.

  • 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.
  • Maybe you are coming here to look at the ruins of the bridge, but the main thing in this place-the general atmosphere of the paradisiacal places. I was here in November. Imagine: warm weather, a gentle breeze, a herd of mountain goats, who came to the banks of the River to drink. And DOHRENA trees, totally tangerines as Christmas trees in the family of the maximalists. All tangerines, even green-delicious, sweet and seedless. I thought, I'm here to live stay!

  • Aspendos Ancient City visiting accomplished before in the first place. Especially if you go early in the morning you may be witness of the Köprüçay beauty. The bridge is restored from A to Z. Standing next to some ruins.

  • Its surroundings are broken bottles from the garbage. History has been the venue for a lot of punks. Restoration is a separate outrage. Points to the views
