Dating back to the late 16th Century Ponte delle Guglie is one of the two bridges that span the Cannareggio Canal, and perhaps the less known (the other being Tre Archi).  It’s name however derives from its restoration in 1823 when the structure was completely rebuilt and a pair of spires added at each end.  Ponte delle Guglie – Bridge of Spires.

 

Contrarily I chose to photograph its gargoyles instead.
