Ponte Cavriga

Built between 1831 and 1833, and designed by the architect Giacomo Tazzini, Ponte Cavriga is one of the four bridges that cross the river Lambro within Monza Park; it has a single span with an elliptical arch in ceppo del Lambro (a local stone) with parapets made of stone columns linked by iron railings.

There are various opinions on the derivation of the bridge’s name. The one that seems the most plausible is that it derives from the Lombard "cavra" (goat) because it is said that the local goats used to graze along the banks of the Lambro near the bridge.
