Greece - Crete, Kato Preveli
The single arched bridge is known by many as the ‘Venetian Bridge’, but although the style is Venetian the bridge was built in 1850 by the monks of the nearby monastery. The bridge comprises of two inclined stone laid levels of 13,30 meters width and 7,60 meters height. The construction is highly regarded both from the architectural and the aesthetic points of view.
Right by the bridge is a summer taverna (PiP) and just up the road from the bridge are the ruins of Kato Moni Preveli.

The bridge crosses the river Megas Potamos (literally ‘Big River’) which flows towards the sea through the palm forest of Preveli. It is one of the few rivers in Crete which has water all year round.

This is a rather nice looking bridge and a very good photograph. It reminds me of a 15th century packhorse bridge in a village close to where I live in Eastern England.

There is a photograph of it in one of my Ipernity photographs:
