Devil’s Bridge (Ponte del Diavolo)


Devils Bridge 1

A little town in Tuscany called Borgo a Mozzano (over the Serchio River) has one of the world’s most famous “Devil’s Bridge’s”. The legend goes like this:

Devil's Bridge 2

(Sometime in the Middle Ages, a builder set to construct a new bridge over the Serchio River. But he he had trouble constructing something so narrow)

Devil's Bridge 3(He worried that he would not be able to construct the bridge on his own so he made a deal with the Devil. He promised him the first soul to cross the bridge once it was constructed)

Devil's Bridge 4

(The bridge was completed without any problems. But the builder sent a dog over the bridge first, before any people, thus giving the Devil a dog’s soul)

Devil's Bridge 5(Now we can all cross and enjoy this unique bridge!)

Brittany has some great photos that I am sure she will share soon too!
