Bridge of Sighs

"According to legend the Bridge of Sighs, built in 1600 to link the Doge's Palace with the new prisons, takes its name from the lamentations of the prisoners as they made their way to offices of the State Inquisitors." <br />
- Venice and the Veneto, Susie Boulton, Christopher Catling
