Rio - Antirio

This is the big cable-stayed bridge connecting the Peloponnese with mainland Greece at the height of Rio and Antirio respectively where the two regions reach the shortest distance between them. The bridge has a length of 2280 meters and is supported by four pillars. The draft of the pillars in some places reaches 65 meters below sea level and by an architectural point of view the bridge is designed with impressive sturdiness. Specifically can cope with an earthquake of 7.4 Richter, withstand an impact with a tanker of displacement of 180,000 tons, and finally can continue to stand erect after the passage of even a hurricane. The bridge was completed in 2004 and after a brilliant ceremony attended by the President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias, was called "Charilaos Trikoupis Bridge" to honour the political’s vision which was the bridge. As a guest you can cross the bridge with your vehicle or alternatively cross it via the pedestrian or cycle path which in this case is not necessary to pay a fee.
