A fascinating steel structure, 227 meters long and 36 metres high, in San Marcello Piteglio.

The Ironworks Suspension Bridge is a pedestrian walkway that connects the two sides of the river Lima, between Mammiano Basso and Popiglio in the municipality of San Marcello Piteglio.

It is realized with structures that rest on four steel cables held tightly in tension. It measures 227 meters in length, 36 meters of maximum height over the riverbed and 80 cm in width.

It was inaugurated in 1923 in order to reach the SMI factories in Mammiano Basso more easily. Today it is one of the territory’s main attractions, to live with bated breath.
