A much-repaired medieval bridge crossing the Aufidus (modern Ofanto) river. Long a traditional candidate location for the "Pons Aufidi" shown on the Peutinger map (thus BAtlas), recent survey work has found no evidence in the area consistent with a Roman-era bridge. The Pietra Dell'Oglio bridge (further south on the Ofanto) is of Roman date and now a more likely candidate. The Ponte S. Venere remains in use today for the Strada Statale 303.
