Description:

The path of the Tibetan bridges of Sasso di Castalda develops on the banks of the "Fosso Arenazzo" which opens at the foot of the suggestive historical center. 

 

Through the narrow streets that branch out between the characteristic stone dwellings of the historic center, we reach the start of the first bridge, “Ponte Petracca”  95 meters long and suspended about 30 meters high, through which we reach the slope characterized by formations geological. 

 

Going along the path along the bank of the Fosso, you pass the votive chapel "Madonna delle Grazie" to reach the start of the impressive "Ponte alla Luna" in 10 minutes . 

Through a single span of 300 meters and suspended in a vacuum at 102 meters highfrom the stream below, literally walking in the air you get to the ruin of the castle that dominates the village from a suggestive panoramic point. 

The arrival is a terrace overlooking the bridge, a  glass sky-walk , which invites you to catch your breath realizing the path faced. 

In the immediate vicinity, from the ancient ruins of the Medieval Fortress, there is a lookout with rotating binoculars,  from which to admire the panorama of the surrounding mountains at 360 degrees. 

 

Going down a comfortable stretch of stone steps, you go back to the old town through the characteristic church of "St. Nicholas" has recently been restored.

 

The total duration of the route of the two Tibetan bridges is about 1 hour and a half.
