The bridge of Quercetu is located in the plains. It dominates pastures invaded in spring by asphodel. The bridge of Ponticellu "little bridge" crosses the river to the height of the hamlet . It connects the two banks. Architecturally the most successful, the bridge next to the fountain in the vault which was restored in 2007. The whole is very harmonious. This place is the starting point for many walks . The old road - strada vechja - which led to the plains from there. Further up the valley, at the height of the hamlet of Selmacce the third bridge is names the Guadubughju (dark stream ). This is one of the most remarkable places of the valley .
