Pia Bridge

The Ponte della Pia  is a Roman bridge, rebuilt in medieval times
The bridge consists of a single arch and whose current structure dates back to the early 13th century, connects the two banks of the Rosia and in the past played an important role on the route of the ancient Via Massetana which connected Siena to the Maremma, and in particular the metalliferous hills and Massa Marittima, hence the name of the street.
Once across the bridge we find ourselves on the other side of the Gorge where the river and where is the road, called “manliana, reconstructed the course of the fifteenth century, leading to the Hermitage of Santa Lucia in Rosia.
