Malagonlong Bridge in Tayabas, Quezon province(northern Philippines) was built in 1840 and completed 10 years later under the supervision of parish head P. Antonio Mateos.
The bridge is one of the few surviving arch-type, stone 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.
The Malagonlong Bridge testifies to the skills of Filipino builders and workers who built remarkable structures during the Spanish era. The bridge has lasted for centuries even without using reinforcing steel or modern technology. A modern girder type bridge is being built on the upstream side to replace the old one. Once it is completed the new bridge would provide a better vantage view of the Malagonlong Bridge from the upstream side (From Waypoint)
