Treviso: Porta Fra’ Giocondo

PortaFraG

On the outskirts of Treviso is the Porta Fra’ Giocondo. The bridge was constructed under the direction of the Italian architect¬†Fra Giovanni Giocondo during the¬†15th century as part of the strengthening of the city fortifications. The bridge has two semi circular brick bastions that support the rusticated stone bridge which crosses the carriageway beneath.
