Devil's bridge

SD/HD Mute

Hermits had been building it for 20 years – it was built from 1671-1691. It used to provide entrance to the monastery of Carmelite monks in Siedlec. For many years it was used both by monks and secular persons. Its condition deteriorated over the years and in 1843 it became severely damaged. But it was operational until 1889 when it was closed again due to bad condition. Right now, there are just ruins left, but the bridge itself was quite impressive – 120 metres long, 18 metres high and 9.5 metres wide.

At first sight, it looks a bit like a Roman aqueduct. Why is it called the devil’s bridge? Supposedly there’s a treasure buried underneath it and the devil himself guards it. Other legend – one of the stupidest ones I’ve heard – says that devil’s congregation led by Lucifer and Beelzebub takes place here. Maybe you should take that under consideration? :)
