    This one is really interesting and hard to find online. I don’t think I have seen this bridge, so I am looking for search words that could help.
    What do you call the bridge’s feet in English (the massive triangular shapes between the arches)?

  2. That bridge is way older than that... Think about a large city of the Roman empire.

    Nope, I am getting nowhere. Google image searches of “old bridge in ...“ with Rome, Constantinople, Antioch, Carthage, Florence, Milan, lugdonum/lyons, etc show me nothing that looks like this.

    “Where have you been?” Indeed, where have I been that I missed Cordoba?
    Now I have one more city on my to do list. It will never end!

    Thanks, @marylander1940 , I learned sth today.

    Oh, yeah, it must be the imperial palace gardens. I can’t believe I’ve been there and didn’t even recognise.

    I thought it looked like Japan, but I wasn't sure where (my first thought was Osaka).
