The Invisible Bridge

This Moses-style bridge was built in Holland; it literally parts the waters to allow people to cross a moat to reach a historic fort. It is one of the brilliance of Architecture. It is a hollow pathway beneath the water level surrounding Fort de Roovere in Holland.  This cleverly constructed bridge nearly invisible to the eye when viewed from a distance.

This invisible bridge was built in the 17th century to protect against invasion by France and Spain. It was designed as an invisible bridge. The bridge can’t be seen from a distance because the ground and the water come all the way up to its edge. But getting closer, the fortress opens up through a narrow channel for pedestrians to walk up to its gates like Moses on the water. The bridge was rebuilt due to its poor condition in 19th century.
