A unique frame bridge with an Italian style “belly” span in the center, the Loreto bridge crosses a deep gorge in the mountainous Liguria region of Italy. Since the frame or arch effect of compression does not occur across the central span, the Triora or Loreto bridge could also be considered a beam bridge with inclined piers. However you define it, the bridge will always be picture perfect in its remote setting next to a small church. Bungee jumping groups occasionally trek to the bridge.
