Ponte Coperto covered bridge on the River Ticino


The Ponte Coperto (also knowns as Ponte Vecchio) is a covered bridge on the River Ticino in Pavia, which connects the historic centre of the town and the rest of the city (situated on the left bank of the Ticino), with the colourful district of Borgo Ticino which was originally outside the boundary walls of the city. The bridge has five arches and is completely covered with two great doorways, one at each end, and a little chapel in the centre. Even though the present bridge was built in 1949, it is a reproduction of the old Ponte Coperto, which dates back to the 14th century.
