Belgium - Li Pontia


Stamp Issue : 1965-11-13 

Li Pontia is the main bridge that crosses the River Meuse at the centre of the town in Huy, Belgium. Acurate reconstruction of the old bridge build in 1294 and the ancient structure is far more than just a practicality; it is a piece of art in itself. The bridge has a story to tell, and offers a wonderful centrepiece to the rushing waters of the Meuse. The bridge is also a great place from which to get a great photo of the town and its buildings.
