Cippo e Croce al ponte della Roccaccia

Cippo e Croce al ponte della Roccaccia

Just outside the town of Bagno di Romagna, in a southerly direction, where the Via Casentinese crosses the SP. 138, there is a high cross of worked iron that rests on a stone base. On it an illegible inscription reads: "ECCE LIGNUM CRUCIS, FROM CHRISTIAN A GREETING AND A GUARD AT LEAST, MDCCCLXIII". Placed along the road that led to Tuscany, it is a classic road sign: it indicated a crossroads of mule tracks and roads and also constituted the station facing south of the spring "rogazioni".

Getting here
