Travel to Bagni di Lucca

The Ponte delle Catene or Bridge of Chains is a 19th-century suspension bridge in Bagni di Lucca, Tuscany. The Bridge spans the river Lima, a branch of the Serchio, and links Fornoli and Chifenti.

When a prior 1317 stone bridge attributed to Castruccio Castracani, had been destroyed by a flood, this bridge was commissioned in 1840 by Carlo Ludovico from the Neoclassical architect Lorenzo Nottolini. The architect travelled to England to study the then-newfangled suspension bridges, he was impressed by the Hammersmith Bridge, and the planned Clifton Suspension Bridge between Avon and Bristol.
