A jewel of lightness
The Ponte Vecchio of Dolceacqua, with its unique 33-meter arch, is one of the emblems of the village.
Built in the fifteenth century on the ruins of an older bridge, it has been described as a “jewel of lightness” by the impressionist painter Claude Monet, who portrays the structure in three canvases dated 1884.
The bridge connects the area called “Terra” to the “Borgo” where the Doria Castle is located.
