Stylish bridge

[ Feb.2013 ] The main purpose of our visit to Pavia, south of Milan, Italy was to take photos of Ponte Coperto.

It is a bridge over Ticino river and it has got the roof.

Unfortunately the weather was bad, but the brick bridge had a particular atmosphere and I could see the shape was very nice.

This bridge was originally built in 1354 apparently, after an old Roman bridge.

But it was damaged badly during WW2, so it was rebuilt in 1949, with the same design.
