Argasi Bridge

The now ruined Venetian bridge is the landmark of Argasi. It was built in 1805, according to the plaque that is found above the center arch. At one time this bridge used to carry the main road that hugged the shoreline from south to north. The coastal road started from the church of St. Spiridon of Sgournes and assumingly ended up in the Venetian Vardiola just before Davia. Today, the road has disappeared due to the erosion of the coastline leaving behind a ruined bridge, literally in the sea, just 10 meters from the seashore.

The Venetian bridge is a piece of history and one of those things you have to see when you go to Argassi. It is an extremely picturesque location and a wonderful place to take some amazing photos. It can be found at Argassi beach, next to the small harbor which is just 5 km from the capital of Zakynthos.
