Pons Cestius

The Pons Cestius (Italian: Ponte Cestio) is a bridge that connects the western part of the Centro district of Rome to Tiber Island, in the center of the Tiber River.


Exactly who built this particular bridge is unknown, but it is known that it was the first to connect the right bank of the Tevere to Tiber Island. In ancient times, the river had great religious significance and it was considered a breach of divine law to build a bridge across it. The only person who could approve such a project was the High Priest or "Pontifice", which literally translates to "bridge builder".
