We have a bit of a thing about bridges. They should be such simple, functional objects – simply there to get you across a river or other obstacle. But in fact they are often beautiful and impressive structures in their own right. We see lots of them in our travels and always stop for a second look.
We saw this one in Rome last month. It’s the Ponte Sant’Angelo (literally Bridge of the Holy Angel), which crosses the Tiber at the Castel Sant’Angelo. The bridge is adorned with angels sculpted by Bernini. The Tiber wasn’t exactly “troubled” during our visit, but it was running fairly quickly with the winter rains and looked rather like caffe latte.
