  VISCONTI BRIDGE

From the top of the castle hill I could easily see the whole, impressive structure of Visconti Bridge (Ponte Visconteo) across Mincio river. The 600th anniversary of the bridge was celebrated in 1993.

It was part of the medieval fortifications, the defence system which was put by order of Count Visconti who ruled Lombardy at that time. The system included Scaligeri Castles in Valeggio sul Mincio and Villafranca and the 16 km long wall which ended in Nogarole.
