Bridge over the Canal Grande

Area: Garfagnana
District/Locality: Gallicano
Dating: 14th century

The bridge over the Canal Grande is situated in Taverna, in the town of Gallicano. It is one of the rare medieval bridges in the Serchio Valley, consisting of a single pointed arch. The footbridge was built in sandstone and is crossed by the ancient road running from Taverna to Fiattone. Its construction was carried out by local masons in the 14th century. The bridge is in poor state of preservation, because the two parapets have fallen down.
How to reach

by car:From Lucca take the SS12 road in direction of Abetone. When in Borgo a Mozzano, follow the provincial road towards Castelnuovo Garfagnana. After Galligano take the municipal road to Fiattone. After the crossroads turn left at the signpost Taverna. After a series of hairpin bends reach the signpost "località Taverna". Turn right, and park your car. At the end of the asphalted road begins a large but not beaten footpath going downhill to the bridge.
