Malleco Viaduct is a railway bridge that was built to connect the cities of Angol and Traiguén.  It was inaugurated in 1890 during the government of President Balmaceda.  It is almost 350 meters long and an example of the sophistication of the technology available to the country during that time.  From that perspective, more impressive than its length is its height of over 100 meters.
