Bridges are an engineering feat that serve a specific transportation purpose and require a lot of planning, but they can also be magnificent structures that are marvels unto themselves. If you get a chance to check out these structural masterpieces, they will be well worth your time on your next vacation.
Oliveira Bridge, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Spanning the Pinheiros River the Oliveira bridge is characterized by the “X” form that creates the bridges apex. At Christmastime the cables are lit in festive colours, which make it a beautiful attraction.
Eshima Ohashi bridge, Japan
This bridge seems to defy gravity itself with the steep incline that somehow seems to work. The unusual height of this bridge is intended to allow ships to sail under without an opening mechanism.
