The stone bridge is built across the river Arre in the 12th century. It is one of the most scenic places in the town. The bridge has two arches. The main central arch forms a semi circle above the river. This looks very pretty when the river water is able to reflect the bridge. From the bridge, you can have very beautiful vies along the river valley.
