Aradena bridge

Aradena bridge

Aradena bridge is a wooden-planked bridge located on the south coast of Crete, Greece. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

The bridge of Vardinoyiannis (Γέφυρα Αράδαινας) was built as late as 1986. It’s 275 foot (84 meter) long over the Aradena gorge at the height of 138m. It links the edges of a wild canyon and allows access to the abandoned village of Aradena. It’s said to be one of the world’s highest Bailey bridges.
