Zagnos Bridge

Zagnos Bridge (“Zağnos Köprüsü” in Turkish) is a Roman bridge that connects Atapark to the old town of Ortahisar. It has been renovated by Ottoman governor Zağnos Ahmet Paşa in the 15th century and was named after him. The bridge reflects aspects of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. Outstanding Byzantine stonemasonry is especially notable. The bridge is not only one the most important landmarks of Trabzon, but also a bridge still in use for commuters and pedestrians. It is rumoured that there are hidden tunnels (and even a hidden city according to some), albeit without verification.
