For Centuries, Two Villages Have Worked Together to Rebuild this Bridge Every Single Year
The Q’eswachaka bridge in Peru is rebuilt every year using traditional Inca engineering techniques by the local communities on either side of the canyon. This bridge has been continually rebuilt in this same location since the time of the Inca. The entire bridge is built in only three days!
