When I think of arches, I think of Spain: its architecture, with its strong Arabic influence, contains many arches, not to mention arched bridges and viaducts…

The arched viaduct of Segovia was a functioning method of transporting water into the town, until modern water systems began providing water to the town in the 20th century. These arches dominate the landscape of Segovia, and vehicles zoom under them every day.
