15 poduri celebre
 
Crossing the Tagus River at Alcántara in Spain, the Alcántara Bridge is a masterpiece of ancient Roman bridge building. The bridge was built between 104 and 106 by an order of the Roman Emperor Trajan in 98 AD, who is honored by a triumphal arch in the center of the bridge and a small temple at one end. The Alcántara Bridge has taken more damage from war than from the elements. The Moors destroyed the smallest arch on one side while the second arch on the other side was destroyed by the Spanish to stop the Portuguese.
 
The Ponte Vecchio
(literally “old bridge”) is a Medieval bridge over the Arno River in
Florence. the only Florentine bridge to survive WW2. The bridge is famous for still having shops built along it, as was common in the days of the Medici. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers. It is said that the economic concept of bankruptcy originated here: when a
merchant could not pay his debts, the table on which he sold his wares (the “
banco
”) was physically broken (“
rotto
”) by soldiers, and this practice was called “
bancorotto
” (broken table).
