The name of this park is due to the 14th century medieval bridge that was part of the route of the monks ’ mine (Mare de la Font), near the forest of Can Volpelleres to bring water to the Monastery. It is a Gothic aqueduct built with Campanyà stone (Castellbisbal) that was part of the water supply system in the Monastery and in the lower part of the old town of Sant Cugat.

It carried water through a canal covered with slabs and with an underground route of less than 3 km to a cistern in the monastery. From there it was distributed to the monks' fountain, the abbot's kitchen, and the cloister's fountain.

Although it is documented that this bridge was called the Abbot's Bridge, it was popularly known as the Witches' Bridge.
