Luoyang Bridge, originally called Wan'an Bridge, is the earliest existing cross-sea girder bridge in China. It was built from 1053 to 1059, during the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and was sponsored by the prefecture head Cai Xiang.

The ancient bridge is 731.29 meters long and has 44 ship-shaped piers, 645 columns, 104 stone lions, seven stone towers and one stone pavilion.

It is one of the four famous ancient bridges in China.
