Taleyfac Spanish Bridge

The Taleyfac Spanish Bridge, known locally as Taleyfac Tolai Acho, is a historic stone arch bridge off Guam Highway 2 in Agat, Guam. It crosses the Taleyfac River with two stone arches; it is 36-foot (11 m) long and 15-foot (4.6 m) wide. It originally had wood timber flooring, which has long ago been replaced. One of the arches has been damaged by the removal or loss by erosion of some of its stones.[2]
