Ponts Couverts, Strasbourg, France

Heralding your entry to Petite France is a set of three fortified bridges that you’ll know for their four tall square towers. These were built in the 1300s and were part of the city’s original line of ramparts.

The bridges’ name is a bit of a misnomer these days as they aren’t actually covered any more: Up to the 1700s the crossings were protected by long roofs that would have offered cover during sieges. The bridges became obsolete after the Barrage Vauban was completed upriver and the roofs have been gone for almost 300 years, but the name survives.
