Geocache Description:

magnific pont de Sant Antoni de la Grella

Després d’una estoneta passada la gran roca i passant un petit pont trobareu el pont de sant Antoni de la Grella. Abans d’arribar a ell podeu aprofitar per cercar el catxé GC2V9MW que es troba en aquest mateix camí i per visitar l’oratori de Sant Antoni.
Si heu arribat aquí en cotxe trobareu un aparcament al costat de l’oratori.
El pont de Sant Antoni de la Grella, també anomenat pont de Sispony, és un pont d'origen romànic, refet a meitat del s.XX, situat al costat de la capella de Sant Antoni de la Grella i del camí ral que unia les parròquies d'Andorra la Vella i la Massana. Antigament era l’únic pas que hi havia per arribar a la Massana; passa per damunt del riu Valira Nord. El pont és una senzilla construcció en albardilla, amb un sol ull d'arc de mig punt rebaixat, amb les dovelles sense tallar. Disposa de muralleta i calçada empedrada. La seva llargada és de 21,20 m. i la seva alçada màxima de 5,55 m. (wikipèdia)

Si continueu el camí arribareu a l’esglèsia de Sant Antoni i desprès tindreu una vista magnifica del “pont dels dos Valires”

After a while once passed the great rock and find a small bridge you will find the bridge of Sant Antoni de la Grella. Before the first bridge you can search the cache GC2V9MW which is located in the same way and visit the little chapel of Sant Antoni.

If you arrived here by car you will find a car park next to the chapel
The Bridge of “Sant Antoni de la Grella”, also called “Sispony bridge” is a bridge of Roman origin, rebuilt in the mid-twentieth century, next to the chapel of Sant Antoni de la Grella and the road linking the parishes of Andorra la Vella and la Massana. It used to be the only way to reach La Massana, passing over the River North Valira. The bridge is a simple construction, with one eye lowered arch, the voussoirs uncut. Its length is 21.20 m. and its maximum height of 5.55 m. (Wikipedia)
If you continue the path you will find the church of San Antoni and after you will have a magnificent view of the "bridge of two Valires"
