Description

Architectural view. The facade that looks out of the city is adorned with white stone d'Istria, with four pairs of columns, which are in turn topped by a lintel adorned with four cannon balls in trachyte. Above that is a bell tower with a clock. The bridge is on the channel Piovego and has three arches, and at its end a carving of a lion.
