2dec17--“Ponte delle Torri”,or the Bridge of Towers, its two central pillars are hollow on the inside and they have entrance doors. This means that they definitely were well-defended towers.

The Ponte delle Torri of Spoleto is 236 m long and 90 m high. It is a huge ten-arcade work that connects Colle Sant' Elia with Monteluco. It is constituted of a road and a water canal supported by ogival arcades and stone pillars. It can be reached after a long fine-view walk around the Rocca.The Fortilizio dei Mulini and the Basilic of St. Peter can be visited while crossing the bridge. The historians have not come to a satisfactory agreement about its exact date of construction, yet. Some of them say it was built in the XIII century, probably over the remains of an ancient Roman aqueduct.
I think I've seen this bridge in the Tour de France. Can anyone verify that?
