It is well known that there is an important number of Venetian bridges in Cyprus that form a part of the cultural heritage on the island. One of these bridges is the Trozena Bridge which is located in the village of Gerovasa in the Limassol district.
More specifically it was built in order to connect the village with the west part of the Diarizos River. It is a well-designed bridge made of steel, while wooden beams were used for the roadway. What is impressive about this particular construction is the non-existence of arches, giving it the impression that it hovers in the air.
For visitors with fear of heights, crossing the particular bridge may seem risky. However the use of the bridge is quite safe, but it is important that only one vehicle passes at a time, and that its total weight does not exceed 8 tonnes. The Diarizos River flows under the Trozena Bridge, while the area is surrounded with thick vegetation of plane trees, terebinth trees and alder trees.
