I would like to build this up as an Archive of bridges still in existence so if you have photos and locations. Please email them and I will add them in. As its pretty much history your writing in words and pictures. Sorry to say if its not preserved now it may end up lost and forgotten.

Arco Bridge (Lucban, Quezon) Now more popularly known as Puente de Arco, the bridge made of adobe was constructed in 1851. Originally a two arched bridge that spans the Camatian River only one arch remains standing. Caprichio Bridge (Majayjay, Laguna)Built in 1826 by Fray Victorino del Moral de Calatrava to provide a footway to town. Built over the river Olla, the arch is 90 feet high, constructed using Mamposteria technique, (rough stone placed one on top of another) and bound together using only a lime mixture. Mabacao Bridge (Maragondon, Cavite)Crossing over the Cay Alvaran River, the Mabacao Bridge is one of the few remaining steel trussed bridges built during the Spanish Period.
