(Almost) Indestructible

Also known as Ponte di Castelvecchio, this beautiful segmental arch bridge was built during the mid-14th century by Cangrande II della Scala, then Lord of Verona. His plan was to use this bridge as a way of escape should the citizens of Verona start to rebel against him and try to overthrow his rule. As you can imagine, this bridge was built to be very sturdy, and it was virtually unharmed until 1945. In that fateful year, German troops destroyed the entire bridge. It was rebuilt in 1951 and is now back to its original crenelated best.
