The "Ponte dei salti", also known as the "Roman Bridge", crosses the Verzasca River near Lavertezzo. It is a stone bridge with two arches that was built in the Middle Ages. After the partial destruction in 1868, it was rebuilt in 1960. There is an 18th century chapel nearby.
The Verzasca valley offers various bathing and swimming opportunities. The most famous river ponds are in Lavertezzo and Brione Verzasca. The most popular diving spots are the "Pozzo della Misura" and the "Pozzo dei Salti". The river with its crystal clear and emerald green water can, however, also harbor dangers. Therefore, please observe the information signs on site.
