Spanning the Ticino River in the Italian town of Pavia, the Ponte Coperto is a stone and brick arched bridge.
The present bridge dates from 1949, when the previous 14th century bridge was too badly damaged in WW II for repairs. Every effort was made to reproduce the old covered bridge, including the arches and the small chapel located on the bridge.
Many locals consider it the gateway to the city, and it makes a convenient crossing from the suburban Borgo neighborhood to the historic center of the city. Remains of the two previous bridges that stood here can still be seen in the water.
