Description

The bridge was designed by architect Angelo Vescovali and built between 1886 and 1891; it was dedicated to Margherita of Savoy, first Queen of Italy (1861–1946). The bridge serves as a direct connection between rione Prati and Piazza del Popolo; it was the first masonry bridge built over the Tiber since many centuries.

It shows three masonry arches tiled with travertine and is about 110 meters long.
