Caption

Just large enough to let the passage of a man or a horse, this little bridge resisted to the tempestuous torrent. The roman part of the bridge is the one with the rounded arch, then the original drawbridge was substituted by the larger arch (foreground) at XIVth century. On the other side, behind the modern bridge, is the spanish border at about 2 hours of walk.
All the region (Roussillon) was successively crossed over by hords of Wisigoths, Templars, Sarrasins, brigands, smugglers or Spanish soldiers, depending of the day...
It's now a nice and peacefull place for hiking and fishing delicious trouts.
