The bridge of Sant'Antuono
The Sant'Antuono bridge is an arc-shaped stone building. It is named after the little Church built by the inhabitants of the river dedicated to St. Anthony the Great, commonly known as St. Antuono. This construction was carried out at the beginning of 1200, by local craftsmen under the technical direction of Benedictine monks, skilled engineers, pontiffs and architects. The bridge had the purpose of facilitating the Exchange between the residents of Plan and those of the Sant'Antuono district before it was accessed with uncertain and shaky walkways, and then the launch a stable bridge it's safe. The bridge was built on the river "La Terra", a stream of continuous flow, Calvello is one of the few towns inhabited to be bathed in a watercourse of this kind. The bridge has not undergone any alterations to weather and natural events until the early twentieth century, so today the static condition of the bridge is good, even though the interventions subsequently affected the beauty of the work as a whole.
