Yea, OAKA is truly a complex of arches
BTW this, Arkadiko Bridge, in Peloponnese in Greece, is probably the oldest bridge in the world, and has the oldest arch in the world today. Build in 1300 B.C. Still in use from hikers

might be the oldest arch but oldest bridge? I'm sure people were building crude but functional bridges before then.

In the world today, not necessarily in history, etc

EDIT Also, if I am not mistaken, Hadrian Arch in Athens is also the only surviving two level triumph arch in the world (Of which were very rare).

what I like the most of arches is the importance in engineering along history. And their principles allowed to build domes.

CITY OF THE ARCHES
SEGOVIA, SPAIN


Segovia has 17 Romanesque churches (got to have 40) still has many
arcs that show.
Furthermore, in the province there are at least 100 more Romanesque churches.
We know that Romanesque architecture is the realm of arch
