  • It was originally a Roman aqueduct built in the beginning of our era, and which was to feed the new Roman colony of Aosta. He survived the vicissitudes of time since then and someone had the idea of replacing the water by hikers who are all amazed. Really beautiful even if all the pictures don't do him tribute.

  • Longer than 50 m and a height of approximately 56 m from the level of the river above, with its unique arched structure whose light reaches 14.20 m, is an artifact that impresses his might, especially considering that dates back to the year 3 BC as reported by the inscription on the north façade. Originally what today represents the walkway of the bridge was occupied by a water pipe that carries the waters of the Grand Eyvia in an artificial channel, to support the quarrying of Aymavilles bardiglio marble used in the construction of Augusta Praetoria (Aosta). The lower walkway, instead, illuminated by small Windows on either side, allowed pedestrians. The function of the bridge-aqueduct lasted well into the middle ages. A document from 1265 speaks of a mill and activities related to the exploitation of the energy generated from the water. Only after the mid-16th century. the structure was simply used as a bridge.

  • Crossing the bridge seems to go back into the past. looking at the walls and walking satisfies curiosity. Majestic but safe at the same time! An enchanting view.
