The bridge of “Paliomagerou” or the “large bridge of Chrysaugi”, is built over Paliomagero stream and used to connect the Settlement of Chrysaugi with Pentalofos and Dilofo. According to tradition, the bridge was built in 1854 with the sponsorship of a robber, Nikolaos Zambros from Polyneri, Grevena. In a pursuit by the detachments, he could not cross the flooded stream and asked the people from the village to hide him. In return, he financed the construction of the bridge, and inspected the project hidden in the adjacent watermill.

The master builder is considered to be Nikolaos Anagnostis Tzioufas from Dilofo village. The parapets were made by Efthymios Zioulas and Athanasios Poulios, although another tradition wants the last ones to be the only builders of the entire construction.
