This bridge from 14th century is a special, magical place. Romantic, mystic, crowded, beautiful statues, stunning view of the castle... This is something. Over and over again. Day or night.

Went late at night. Some statues were lit up beautifully but some weren't. Very busy, buskers, families, large groups. Nice atmosphere.
