  • Historical medieval bridge in Adrano. Street simple but full of holes, be careful not to drill. The bridge is very nice also to stand and see the view and the River from above.

  • The bridge of the Saracens is a stone bridge dating back to Roman times and is located in the municipality of Adrano, out of the country but not difficult to reach due to the ongoing road signs. The bridge overcomes the Simeto lavic ravines, at a particular point, namely the Gorges carved by the same River along the basalt formed as a result of eruptions of Etna. The bridge is practicable although cautiously and from above by an interesting glimpse of the River on both sides. The surrounding landscape is not cured (weeds and garbage), so it is not at the moment, unfortunately, a great place for a picnic. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area, also because it is one of the 30 most beautiful bridges of Italy.

  • Beautiful place. Worth visiting. Easy to get to even if some part of the road is difficult but it is a place he deserves.

  • Beautiful bridge and very nice river a bit cold but good for swiming
  • Amazing structure well worth the drive down one lane streets to visit
  • Undemanding excursion along the banks of the simeto which allows you to see this beautiful bridge, just a few kilometres from catania. Now pedestrian only. Parked the car and nn crossing the bridge you can walk along the River before from above then c and a small descent to the left which brings you closer to the river. Just polished stones such as the Gorge of alcantara. Directions: coming from adrano road is reported then the signs disappear ... I recommend if you are coming from catania take the Ss121. If it arrives much sooner.

  • The bridge of the Saracens or of Carcaci is a stone bridge probably dating back to Roman times and rebuilt and modified in the twelfth century the river Simeto. Although it is called bridge of the Saracens seems to have been built in the middle ages. Remains of the ancient structure, only the central arch, with pointed arches; other, smaller ogive and semicircular Roman probably another source, were destroyed by the flood of 1948, and rebuilt later in different ways than the original.

  • A place of historical interest. Unfortunately the path is a bit steep. The river Simeto is King and the protagonist. Water and small waterfalls make the landscape inspiring. The bridge is traversable.
