The nowdays stone bridge was design by Antonio de Ponte whom thought a unic arch bridge, 48 meters long and 22 meters wide. It was finally completed in 1591.
It have two inclined ramps lead up to a central portico. On either side of the portico the covered ramps carry rows of shops. From the top of the bridge you can see a nice voew over the Grand Canal.
Nowdays it became one of the architectural icons of Venice and one of the major tourist sights in the town.
