The Central Bridge

THE MAIN ARTERY OF MEDIEVAL FRIBOURG

The pont du Milieu also dates from the latter half of the 13th century. In those days, it provided an access route from the Auge peninsula to the Planche-Inférieure, and further on to the Commandery of St John (founded in 1259), Maigrauge Abbey (founded in 1255) and the Bourguillon leper colony (pre-1252). It also made it easier to get to Marly and the Upper Singine, tucked away behind the cliffs you see in front and to the right of you. Back in the day there would have been a gate tower, thereby ensuring that the district of Auge was protected at either end. The original timber structure was replaced in 1720 by a stone four-arch humpback bridge, in keeping with many bridges built during that time.
