Reviews about Chapel Bridge and Water Tower

欲飞的鸟

5/5
Reviewed on 17 Mar 2017

Capel Corridor Bridge is the symbol of Ryusen and the most famous tourist attraction. It was built in 1333 and is the oldest wooden bridge in Europe. It is also called "Church Bridge" and has a beautiful name "Flower Bridge". There are busy commercial streets at both ends of the bridge. Tourists flock to each other. Near the center of the bridge, there is an octagonal water tower. It used to be the place where trophies and jewelry were laid during the battle. It was also used as a prison and execution room for some time. Who could have imagined that such a beautiful corridor bridge had been hit by a fire on August 17, 1993, which almost destroyed the wooden bridge, leaving only the water tower unspoiled. It was rebuilt by Swiss craftsmen, and the wooden bridge was almost completely recreated on the surface of the lake. All the details of the rebuilding are restored according to documents and other records, including the paintings on the inner wall of the bridge roof.
