The Castelvecchio Bridge is attached to Castelvecchio and it is a fortified bridge built over the Adige River. As its castle, it is built in red bricks and it is one of Verona’s main landmarks. Today, it has a length of 120 meters.
It is unknown when exactly it was built but according to some, it was between the years 1354 and 1356 to provide the Scaliger family a way to escape from the castle in case of a rebellion of the population of the city.
The bridge was destroyed by German troops in 1945 but was almost completely reconstructed in 1951.
