07 - Via Spluga



The Via Spluga was a Roman consular road, built at the end of the 1st century BC. at the behest of Augustus, who put Milan in communication with Lindau via the Spluga pass. The pass was known by the name of Cunus Aureus, as gold was extracted along the Alpine arc in mines in the mountain ranges; hence the other name of Via Aurea with which this route was known.
