BRIDGE OF SIGHS
copyright ©JUNE FERROL  All Rights Reserved



The Bridge of Sighs is one of the most famous bridges of Venice, built in the 1600 by Antonio Contino,  highly ornamental, built of fine, white limestone with lattice-like screens covering two small rectangular windows, the footbridge served a very practical purpose. It was used to lead prisoners from the examining rooms to their cells in the prisons.
Legend has it that the bridge earned it’s name from the fact that prisoners who crossed through it, on the way to their prison cells or the execution chamber, would sigh as they caught their last glimpses of Venice through the tiny windows. The bridge, and its unforgettable name, became particularly famous after the Romantic poet Lord Byron referenced the famous bridge in his 1812 book “Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage”:
“I stood in Venice, on the Bridge of Sighs; a palace and a prison on each hand.”
If ever you are in Venice you must cross over the Bridge of Sighs, it’s quite an experience :)
