The bridge spans the stream Esarulo in the district "I Molini". It has an elegant and humped back outline, and is supported by a round arch. This sandstone footbridge was built by local masons in the 14th century. The bridge can be crossed over and is in an excellent state of preservation.
The view, which may be enjoyed from the bridge, is quite impressive.
