Night shot of the Roman bridge Sant'Angelo (Roman as in: in Rome and built under the Roman era). The bridge has five spans, and the middle three are Roman originals. It was built under emperor Hadrian, completed in 134 A.D., and was then called Pons Aelius (pons is Latin for bridge, and Aelius was Hadrians nomen, the Roman version of a surname).

 

The angels are Baroque embellishments, designed by Bernini in 1688 and executed by his pupils. The name of the bridge is not due to the statues, but because the bridge leads up to Castel Sant'Angelo, which had had a statue of the archangel Saint Michael on its roof since 1536 (first in marble, and it was later replaced by a bronze version still standing there).

 

By the way, that original angel can be seen here: www.flickr.com/photos/dameboudicca/3277130449

and the angel closes to the camera in this shot, looks like this from the front (in daylight): www.flickr.com/photos/dameboudicca/12156889973

Ponte Sant'Angelo, originally the Aelian Bridge or Pons Aelius, is a Roman bridge in Rome, Italy, completed in 134 AD by Roman Emperor Hadrian (Publius Aelius Hadrianus), to span the Tiber from the city centre to his newly constructed mausoleum, now the towering Castel Sant'Angelo. The bridge is faced with travertine marble and spans the Tiber with five arches, three of which are Roman; it was approached by means of ramp from the river. The bridge is now solely pedestrian, and provides a scenic view of Castel Sant'Angelo. It links the rioni of Ponte (which was named after the bridge itself), and Borgo, to whom the bridge administratively belongs. (Wikipedia)

Ponte del Diavolo, or Ponte della Maddalena (Italian: "Bridge of Mary Magdalene") is a bridge crossing the Serchio river near the town of Borgo a Mozzano in the Italian province of Lucca, Italy.

 

While this gorgeous bridge is not actually in Bagni di Lucca it is synonymous with the area, and a perfect introduction to our villages . The very beautiful Ponte Diavolo crosses the Serchio river at Borgo a Mozzano, just 4 kilometres before Bagni di Lucca.

 

The bridge was thought to be commissioned by the Countess Matilda of Tuscany around 1080 – 1100 to enable people to cross the Serchio and get access to the spas in Bagno di Corsena, as Bagni di Lucca was then called.

 

The name Ponte Maddalena comes from a life size image of Maddalena, a painting from the Della Robbia school, which was in an oratory at the foot of the bridge. You can now see it in the Church of S. Jacopo in Borgo a Mozzano.

 

The bridge’s more popular name, Devil’s Bridge, comes from the legend from the time of Saint Julian, the protector of travellers. The devil was asked for help to construct the bridge and in return he was offered the soul of whoever crossed the bridge first. Saint Julian arranged for a dog to cross the bridge for the first time.

 

In 1836 a flood damaged the bridge and it required significant repairs. An extra arch was added in the early 1900s to make more room for a surfaced roadway.

Si parla per la prima volta di questo ponte nel 207 a.C. in relazione al ritorno dalla battaglia del Metauro durante la seconda guerra Punica. All’epoca il ponte, la cui costruzione era attribuita ad un Molvius era in legno. Il Censore Marco Emilio Scauro nel 110 a.C. lo fece ricostruire in pietra. Nel 312 nelle campagne circostanti al ponte ebbe luogo la battaglia tra Costantino e Massenzio. La leggenda riporta che qui Costantino ebbe la visione della Croce con la scritta: ” In hoc signo vinces”. Del ponte romano restano solo le tre arcate centrali. Dopo varie vicende che si protraggono nei secoli, veniamo a tempi più recenti. Sotto il Papa Pio VII, il ponte venne restaurato dall’architetto Giuseppe Valadier intorno al 1805, il quale ricostruì le arcate alle estremità ,che erano state sostituite da ponti levatoi in legno, costruendo sulla parte settentrionale del ponte una torre in stile neoclassico che si può vedere ancora oggi.

Nel 1849 Giuseppe Garibaldi lo fece saltare per ostacolare l’avanzata dei Francesi. Nel 1850 fu fatto restaurare dal Papa Pio IX.

Il ponte viene chiamato familiarmente Ponte Mollo, perchè in quasi tutte le piene del Tevere, il ponte va sotto acqua cioè " a mollo ".

 

This bridge was first mentioned in 207 BC. in connection with the return from the battle of the Metauro during the second Punic war. At the time, the bridge, whose construction was attributed to a Molvius, was made of wood. The Censor Marco Emilio Scauro in 110 BC he had it rebuilt in stone. In 312 the battle between Constantine and Maxentius took place in the countryside surrounding the bridge. Legend has it that here Constantine had the vision of the Cross with the inscription: "In hoc signo vinces". Of the Roman bridge only the three central arches remain. After various events that continue over the centuries, we come to more recent times. Under Pope Pius VII, the bridge was restored by the architect Giuseppe Valadier around 1805, who rebuilt the arches at the ends, which had been replaced by wooden drawbridges, building a neoclassical tower on the northern part of the bridge that can still see today.

In 1849 Giuseppe Garibaldi blew him up to hinder the advance of the French. In 1850 it was restored by Pope Pius IX.

The bridge is familiarly called Ponte Mollo, because in almost all the floods of the Tiber, the bridge goes under water, that is, "soaking".

Il Ponte del Mare è un ponte strallato ciclo-pedonale situato nella città di Pescara e, con i suoi 466 m di lunghezza tra le spalle ed i 172 m di luce dell'impalcato sospeso, è il più grande ponte ciclo-pedonale italiano ed uno dei maggiori d'Europa.

Tale ponte collega la riviera sud con quella nord del fiume Pescara permettendo di creare la necessaria continuità al Corridoio Verde Adriatico, la pista ciclabile che corre lungo tutta la costiera adriatica da Ravenna a Santa Maria di Leuca, in via di completamento.

Il ponte è stato inaugurato ed aperto al pubblico il giorno 8 dicembre 2009.

Puente sobre la Ría de Aveiro (Portugal)

 

La Ria de Aveiro es un ecosistema absolutamente único en Portugal, situado entre Ovar en el norte y Mira en el sur.

 

Una tierra de belleza natural incomparable.

 

Aparte de ser un activo económico muy importante, la Ria de Aveiro es también lo que define la identidad de toda la región.

Enclavado en mitad de un espectacular paisaje, este magnifico puente medieval que atraviesa el río Tambre uniendo las localidades de Outes y Noia fue construido durante el reinado de Alfonso IX y de ahí le viene su nombre.

 

Antes de su construcción se pasaba el estuario en barca. Reformas medievales y la reedificación llevada a cabo entre 1842 y 44 le dieron su aspecto actual. Está construido en bien labrados sillares de granito y sostenido por una veintena de arcos de perfil ojival.

 

El hermoso paisaje en que está enclavado, formado por el curso bajo del Tambre cerca ya de su encuentro con el mar, la amplitud del cauce festoneado en sus bordes por un espeso cañaveral refugio de abundante fauna y todo rodeado de las montañas al fondo, hacen que su visita sea obligada, aunque ello suponga recorrer unos cuantos kilómetros a mayores

The Ponte Pietra (Italian for "Stone Bridge"), once known as the Pons Marmoreus, is a Roman arch bridge crossing the Adige River in Verona, Italy. The bridge was completed in 100 BC, and the Via Postumia from Genoa to Aquileia passed over it. It is the oldest bridge in Verona.

 

It originally flanked another Roman bridge, the Pons Postumius; both structures provided the city (on the right bank) with access to the Roman theatre on the east bank. The arch nearest to the right bank of the Adige was rebuilt in 1298 by Alberto I della Scala. Four arches of the bridge were blown up by retreating German troops in World War II, but rebuilt in 1957 with original materials.

Ponte Vecchio is the oldest and most famous of all the bridges of Florence.

A Ponte

Fica-se a ponte no espaço

À espera de quem lá passe

Que o motivo de ser ponte

Se não pára a construção

Vai muito mais a vontade

De estarem onde não estão

...

Há sempre um ponto de mira

O mais comum horizonte

Nunca as pontes lá chegaram

Porque acaba o construtor

Antes que a ponte se entronque

Onde se acaba o transpor

(José Saramago - Provavelmente Alegria)
