The 3,858 foot (1,176 mtr) long Viaducto de Barbantiño Railway Viaduct (located in the far background of the above image) is one of two new structures to cross over a wide ravine 6 miles (10 kms) northwest of Ourense on the new high speed rail line between Santiago de Compostela and Ourense in the Galicia region of Spain. The bridge lower down in the valley is the Viaducto de Barbantiño AG-53 Autostrada bridge which is also over 328 feet (100 mtrs) high.
