The roman bridges

Il ponte Ettori

 

The ancient Roman "Gurulis Vetus" is placed in a point that is the obligatory passage between the region of Logudoro and the coast at Bosa, in the middle valley of the Temo, between the western coast road at "Tibula Sulcis" and the inland road at "Turre Carales".

The three bridges that have been preserved in the territory and that were still in use in The Middle Ages, are clear indicators of the part played by this centre in Roman time.

The Ettori bridge took care of the connection between Gurulis Vetus with the Roman centre of "Carbia", close to Alghero; the Enas bridge lead towards Bosa and the Planargia; the Umulos bridge made it possible to cross the "Riu Mulinu" and to connect with the inland road system.
