  • Romantic bridge built in the 16th century in the area of ​​the ancient ford of Piora sull'Agogna which today connects Viale Marconi with Via Cureggio. Originally it was in stone and with a single arch, at the southern end stood a tower, no longer present, erected to defend the town and the "mulin Trion" (the mill of the Torrione) from which it takes its name. In the center there is a votive chapel dedicated to Mary depicted as she crosses the bridge. The bridge represented the ancient access to Borgomanero, crossing the executioner's lawn where executions took place and arriving at Piazza XX Settembre (now called Piazza San Gottardo) where the hospital was located. In the 1960s he used to see fishermen or washerwomen passing over the bridge heading towards the bank next to the mill.
  • Historic bridge, the first of Borgomanero.
