Via Prenestina 14.5 km

Ancient Roman bridge built at the end of the second century BC or at the beginning of the first century BC

It was built at the ninth mile of the ancient Via Prenestina where maybe there was a mutatio, a station to replace horses

125 m (410 feet) long and 16 m (52 ​​feet) high with seven arches built with concrete faced with square stones made of a rock called sperone, with keystones in travertine and heads in tufa of the Aniene River

Thousands of people cross the bridge by car every day without even realize they are using a structure more than 2000 years old
