The Sighs Bridge was built in Istrian stone, in Baroque style, in the early seventeenth century by the architect Antonio Contin. This characteristic bridge of Venice, is a little distance from St. Marc Square, connecting with a double pass the Doge's Palace to the new prisons, serving as a passage for the prisoners: according to legend, the name comes from the fact that the prisoners, crossing it, they longed for death.
