Also known as “Ponte Romano”
The ancient bridge of Andora, known as “Roman Bridge”, has, in its current appearance, medieval origins. Made of ten arches, it connected the path that leads from the Castello dei Clavesana and Colla Micheri to the Chiappa Pass. Some features, such as the shape of the base of the pillars, suggest a first building in Roman times with subsequent alterations: it is uncertain whether the Via Julia Augusta crossed the Merula stream here or at the San Lazzaro locality.
