  • Halfway through the long course of the Simeto River, where the waters that come down from the North meet the black lava of the volcano, in a landscape that is expressed with wild notes and strong contrasts, stands one of the most spectacular ancient bridges of Italy. Firmly shaped, the bridge of Saracenni, exceeds the Gorges that the Simeto delves into lava, with a pointed arch surmounted by a black basalt stone and whitish sandstone structure. The bridge, which is actually a bridge of Roman Empire then readjusted during the middle ages, belongs to that which was the main road in Sicily inside and that from Catania to Adrano, Centuripe, Termini Imerese touching Agira, Assoro, Enna ... The places are imbued with an environmental aspect which is not far behind the monumentality of the bridge. The spectacular pseudopoligonali lavas forms, contrasts the spumosissimo Rapids flow waters and around, West the barren landscape of the hills centuripine and to the East the lush countryside. Unfortunately the places are left on their own, a place not only of tourists, difficult to reach.

  • Awesome place! The bridge is in excellent preservation even though you have to be a bit careful if you want to climb over as it is a bit difficult, the venue as a whole is very nice, access the site isn't really easy but some sign from time to time is in any case just ask the locals, all really very friendly and willing to help you with directions (typical Sicilians). Sin is that we went through a period where the River was almost dry for the rest is really a nice place. If you're in the area worth a stop

  • After lunch at a restaurant at Centuripe and, before visiting Adrano, we decide to hunt down (it was difficult for improper directions) the bridge. The last stretch of road to reach it is ill suited to a machine other than the 4 x 4. We got there, taking it slow. It is the 9th century and is on the river Simeto. Unlike what may seem was not built by the Saracens, but by the Normans. Unfortunately, it's a total State of neglect: not only weed and trash around, but also a "pond" of rainwater on the bridge before arriving at its top. What can we say? Not worth the quality certification. My assessment is based on an average: between excellence (bridge River) and bad (abandonment). The Administration has in his hands a priceless gem, but doesn't realize that targeted investment would have a significant economic return. You wouldn't believe!
