Visconti bridge

What to see in Borghetto sul Mincio, Verona, Veneto


also called long bridge (ponte longo in local dialect), the Visconti bridge of Borghetto sul Mincio was built in 1393 and completed in 1395 by Gian Galeazzo Visconti, Duke of Milan, in order to ensure the impenetrabilità of the eastern borders of the duchy. It was a time connected to the overlying Castello Scaligero by two tall embattled curtains and integrated into the fortified complex said Serraglio, that stretched for about 16 km in the Veronese plain up to the marshes of Grezzano. The central cone is situated almost astride on the Mincio, into the underlying zone were present the mouths of sliding of the River (built by diverting the flow of the water course) made skip in 1701 by the French, now are visible the lateral parts of the arches and the bases for resting on the bottom of the River Mincio.
