The Pons Fabricius (Italian: Ponte Fabricio, meaning “Fabricius’ Bridge”) or Ponte dei Quattro Capi, is the oldest Roman bridge in Rome, Italy, still existing in its original state. Built in 62 BC, it spans half of the Tiber River, from the Campus Martius on the east side to Tiber Island in the middle (the Pons Cestius is west of the island). Quattro Capi (“four heads”) refers to the two marble pillars of the two-faced Janus herms on the parapet, which were moved here from the nearby Church of St. Gregory (Monte Savello) in the 14th century.
Ponte Fabricio is Rome’s oldest remaining bridge (it was constructed in 62 BC), From here you can admire the ruins of another bridge that wasn’t so lucky, the Ponte Rotto, which dates back to 179 BC.
