  • Beautiful Bourbon bridge on the river Garigliano, imposing and impressive ... Unfortunately I tried 3 times to visit him well but always find it closed

  • It's 1832 and is carried on the Garigliano River, natural border between the Papal States and the Kingdom of Naples, between Lazio and Campania, this magnificent work of engineering of iron and stone. Iron, limonite, is extracted and processed all the way from Calabria, from the mines of Bivongi and Pazzano. Beautiful statues with Sphinxes guarding the bridge and the two small customs on the sides of the deck on the side of their respective boundaries. Not to be missed!

  • Luigi Swears, designer of the bridge, was a bet won by Ferdinand II, which I appreciate ' innovative ideas presented. The making of the work, second only to another similar French opera, shows the level of the workers who were in the Kingdom of the two Sicilies: Moreover, the King demanded that the testing done by a squadron of cavalry at full Gallop!

  • The place is nice and fairly well maintained ... but there is no indication as to the whereabouts of the access point, nor the fact that the bridge is attached to the archaeological area of Minturnae, so often create annoying misunderstandings and difficulties in information ... that is why I mentioned only two stars we need to eliminate this lack ... and visitors certainly will increase

It was, for its time, the first suspension bridge of the Kingdom of the two Sicilies and continental Europe. The second, however, Christine Marie of, is located in via Bebiana in Solopaca, Benevento. Both are the work of architect Louis Swears.
