Pons Aemilius In Rome

Ponte Rotto, meaning broken bridge, is the oldest Roman bridge built in stone. In the late 1500s the eastern half destroyed in a flood and the remaining half was dismantled in the 1880s. All that remains today of this over two thousand year old bridge is this single arch.

Ettore Roesler Franz painted Ponte Rotto around 1880.
