GreekArkadiko is one of the oldest bridges in existence and continues to be used, strong enough for cars to pass.
The Arkadiko Bridge, also known as Kazarma, was built during the ancient Mycenaean civilization around 1300-1190 BC. The bridge is 22 meters long, more than 5 meters wide and about 4 meters high, underneath is a small hole about one meter that functions as a sewer.
This structure was built on a road connecting the ancient city of Tiryns to the ancient Greek city of Epidaurus. Archaeologists concluded that the design of the bridge was exclusively for carriages, and there were even sections of the roadway to guide drivers.
The bridge-building process uses Cyclopean stacking, which tightly joins limestone blocks, small stones and pieces of tile without mortar or binder. The overlapping stone blocks fit together, forming a solid wall. Currently, the bridge is strong enough for cars to cross, but officials only allow pedestrians to use it.
The bridge is located at the 15th kilometer along the Nauplion – Epidaurus highway, about a two-hour drive from Athens. When visiting, visitors should pay attention to choose a parking place to avoid obstructing traffic on the highway.
