El Kantra

One of 4 famous bridges that cross the Rhumel River gorge in Constantine, Algeria.  The Kantara bridge is the oldest and has taken several different forms over the years from a Roman style multi-arch bridge built in 1792 by Saleh Bey to an 1863 French iron arch, twice destroyed before it got to its current form as a concrete arch bridge. Like the higher Sidi M’Cid bridge, there is a unique, natural “bridge” almost directly under the span that blocks much of the river from view. Partial remains of the earlier stone bridges can still be seen on top of this natural bridge.
