Arches are curved structures with a gap below them, often serving as entrances to buildings, but also occurring naturally in rock canyons and caves around the world.

In architecture, arches are some of the most important structures, and the development of the pointed arch as a refinement of the rounded arch was a major development for building taller and bigger buildings.

In this post, we’ll look at 30 photographs of constructed and natural arches around the world:
