Venice Sighing Bridge, completed in 1600, belongs to the early Baroque style. The closed arch bridge is made of limestone and has only two small windows. The Sighing Bridge crosses a river and connects the interrogation room and prison cell of the Duke of Venice. When the prisoners were sentenced to death at the Governor's Palace, they passed through the bridge, sighed and went to the death row. But there is another beautiful legend: when lovers kiss each other under the sighing bridge at sunset, they will get everlasting love.
Italy, Venice. Sigh Bridge (Italian: Pontedei Sospiri). Sighing Bridge was built in 1603. It has a unique appearance and a complete closed door. There are only two small windows on the side of the canal. On the left of the bridge is the Venice Municipal Palace, which was the court and governor's Office of the Republic of Venice, and on the right is the Venice prison for re-offenders, a closed stone prison, which disappears all the year round. When the repeat offender is brought to the dungeon after being tried in the Governor's Office, he can only see the side of the canal through the small window through the bridge, thus uncontrollably sighing. The sighing bridge is named after it. Sighing Bridge is one of the attractions Venice must introduce. Every day, countless gondolas carry tourists through the bridge.
Venice has thousands of bridges connecting streets and buildings. One of the most popular is the sigh bridge. The other bridges are various and distinctive. Some are very small, just connecting two buildings; some are more like a corridor, there are roofs; some are large span, some are deep arch.
Couples who come to Venice remember to cross the Sighing Bridge and kiss under it. Venice's Sighing Bridge has a great turning point from the road of confession to the sacred place of love. In the past, Sighing Bridge was the only bridge for convicted prisoners to go to prison. When prisoners crossed the bridge, they often sighed with regret, so they got the name "Sighing Bridge". This is where the film "Setting Sunset Bridge" was set. The two ends of the Sighing Bridge connect the Governor's Palace and the Venice Prison, which is the only way for the courts to send the prisoners to death in ancient times. Now the sigh bridge has been given a new meaning. If lovers kiss on the sigh bridge at sunset, they can get eternal love and happiness.
The enthusiastic boatman said that if a boyfriend had to come together, kissing under the sighing bridge would last forever before the bell rings at dusk. I said that in China, we should listen to the words of Cowherd and Weaver Girl on Magpie Bridge under the vineyard on July Eve every year. At this time, I also thought to myself that those loved ones must come to sigh under the bridge earlier than the bell.
