Malagonlong Bridge in Quezon Province is one of the few surviving arch
type bridges built during the Spanish colonial period.
 Located about 2.4 km southeast of Tayabas, it forms part of the
provincial road going to Pagbilao.  About 230m after this bridge is
the junction going to Mauban.

It is wonderful that our forebears could build bridges like this which
could last for centuries even without using reinforcing steel or modern technology.
 A modern girder type bridge is seen being built on the upstream side to
replace the old one.  Once it is completed (construction frequently stops),
this would provide a better view of the old classic from the upstream side.
