Devil’s bridge

Devil’s bridge is an arch bridge over the Arda River situated in a narrow gorge. It was built between 1515 and 1518. The bridge, the largest and best known of its kind in the Rhodopes, is 56 m long and has three arches, but also features holes with small semicircular arches to read water level. The Dyavolski most has a width of 3.5 m and its main arch is 11.50 m high. A stone parapet, 12 cm in height, is preserved on the sides, and breakwaters are placed opposite the stream.
The bridge was proclaimed a monument of culture on 24 February 1984.

The bridge was scanned with FARO Focus 3D laser scanner and for further processing was used Scene software.
