The Roman bridge

The Roman bridge, originally known as Ponte Nuovo, was built in 1578 by the brothers Giuseppe and Pietro Beretta from Brissago. The stones change colour from amber to bright yellow throughout the course of the day, depending on the position of the sun. The structure is one of the landmarks of the Centovalli.

At 36 metres long and 26 metres high, the elegant bridge rises up above the wild countryside with its clefted rockfaces that go right down to the clear water of the river.

You can reach this fascinating place via an ancient mule path located 500 metres from the village of Intragna.
