Eurymedon Bridge is seen to the right on the road to Aspendos from the main coast road. There is a small brown sign.
The foundations, and other stone blocks of the Roman structure, were used by the Seljuqs to build a replacement bridge in the 13th century, the Köprüpazar Köprüsü, which stands to this day. Further renovation took place in the 1990's.
There is a car park and small cafe next to the bridge, but the cafe is shut out of the main season. No entrance fee. Worth a short walk on the way to Aspendos.

Not much to see, no explanation atto why it was not rebuilt on the same foundations etc. Also, DO NOT go to the restaurant next to the bridge. They got me sick as a dog.

Bridge rebuilt the 2nd time in 1998 with nice limestone slabs. Original bridge built in Roman times and some of it is still visible. Rebuilt in 13th century by the Selchuks. Impressive structure.

Pretty bridge with interesting history and the ubiquitous market stalls selling souvenirs. The location is picturesque with a bright green river flowing beneath but there is little to see here really. It makes a nice start to a tour of local ancient sites

This is a Roman bridge destroyed in an earthquake and rebuilt a number of times over the centuries. The bridge you see today looks modern but it sits on Roman foundations. A few portions of the original bridge remain on the parking lot end. A pretty green river flows underneath. This seems to be a popular pick-nick spot for locals so there was quite a bit of trash around. The bridge is signposted off the road leading to the Aspendos Amphitheater so it’s hard to miss. Not really going out of your way for.

Watch out where the sun will be for great shots
If you go down to river level you may catch a good shot
The bridge is historic and it is nice that is still there

Many of the tunnels and bridges that made up the aqueducts of Aspendos, famous for the multiple inverted siphons design, are still standing and quite impressive. The aqueducts brought water from the hills north of the city of Aspendos. It is believed the aqueduct was so damaged by an earthquake that it could not be rebuilt. Stones from the aqueduct were then used to build the bridge. So, in doing research on Aspendos in general, I heard a wonderful tale regarding both the aqueduct and the theater. It goes something like this…The king of Aspendos had a beautiful daughter who was his only child. Many nobles wanted her hand in marriage so the king decided to hold a contest. Whoever built the most magnificent building for Aspendos would win the hand of the princess. Amongst the contestants were two architects. One built the inverted siphon aqueduct and the other built the 12,000 seat theater. The king had decided that the builder of the aqueduct was initially the winner but during one more visit to the theater, while standing at the very top, the king heard a whisper, “I am going to marry the king’s daughter.” When he realized that the origin of the voice was the other architect standing far below, he was so impressed with the acoustics of the theater that he awarded that architect the princess’ hand in marriage. The two were married at the theater. Great story!
