France Cantal Viaduc de Garabit 05

The Garabit Viaduc

Nicknamed "the Eiffel Tower of Cantal", the Garabit Viaduct still attracts admiration, 130 years after its construction by... Gustave Eiffel!

This iron span is 565 m long, culminates at 122 m above the river, and was the “highest viaduct in the world”; until 1886. Its arch was also the longest span in the world.
