The Bridge of Kousioumplis




The Bridge of Kousioumplis car 


Behind Taliaros, in location Fraxos, in the first kilometers of the road connecting Eptahori with Zouzouli, on our right hand side we find the exquisite bridge of Kousioumplis. Stretching over stream Zouzouliotiko, it used to connect Zouzouli with Eptahori. This is also where a signaled, 45-minute trekking path leads, beginning from the square of Eptahori, offering the opportunity to admire the whole area as well as the bridge from above.

According to oral tradition, the bridge was built in the late 18th century or early 19th. Georgios Dimos, Tsiamohristos and the Galanis brothers worked for its construction, all of them artisans from Eptahori. Its total length is 33 meters, and its width 2.4, while the length of its arch is 14 meters and its height 8. In kleidi, the middle stone of the arch that ensures the stability of the entire bridge, there is a carved head.

It was reconstructed in the early 90s with funds from citizens of Eptahori. Its more recent damages have also been repaired recently, that had been caused by erosion, putting the entire construction in danger of collapse. There also used to be a watermill next to the bridge. An interesting architectural element is a small relieving window on its western side.

Αναστηλώθηκε στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ’90 με δαπάνη των Επταχωριτών. Πρόσφατα επισκευάστηκαν και οι νεότερες φθορές του εξαιτίας της διάβρωσης που είχαν υποστεί τα εκεί χαλαρά εδάφη, με αποτέλεσμα να κινδυνεύσει ολόκληρο με κατάρρευση. Δίπλα στο γεφύρι υπήρχε και νερόμυλος. Ενδιαφέρον αρχιτεκτονικό στοιχείο αποτελεί ένα μικρό ανακουφιστικό παράθυρο στη Δυτική πλευρά του.
