The Roman Bridge of Córdoba was originally built in the 1st-century BC, but it has been reconstructed throughout history. It crosses the across the Guadalquivir river, and until the mid 20th-century it was the only river crossing in the city. The bridge is now only open to pedestrians.

This shot also includes the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba which dates back to the 10th-century when the city was one of the largest and wealthiest in Europe. Today, it is one of Spain‘s major historic monuments and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984.
