The World’s longest stone cross sea bridge. De Bosset Bridge in Argostoli, Kefalonia, Greece.

 

OWR certifies that the De Bosset Bridge in Argostoli, Kefalonia, Greece, is the

World’s longest stone cross sea bridge.

The De Bosset Bridge or the De Bosset Causeway is the largest stone bridge on a sea

water body, with a length of 689.9 meters and has been in existence since 1813, when

the Swiss engineer Charles Philippe De Bosset was employed by the British Army and

constructed the brige. In the middle of the bridge is the Column, a marble obelisk monument built as a thank you to the bridge creators. Since March 1970 the De Bosset bridge was classified as a historical monument. In 1985 it was marked as pedestrian road.
