The bridge is recognizable by three elegant arches, protruding pylons and those grimacing goats at the cusp of each arch. The bridge adopted the name Santa Trinita from the nearby basilica at the north end of the bridge. The bridge is embellished by four statues representing the seasons. Spring is depicted by the presence of flower blossoms. Summer is shown by a woman holding a sheaf of harvested wheat. Autumn is shown by the man holding a cluster of grapes, the fruit of the season. Winter is shown by a man in shivers.

This bridge seems to be overlooked by its more famous neighbor. That works just fine as there are no crowds and the photos from the bridge are ideal - Ponte Vecchio, Arno and city skyline. Beautiful statues adorn the entrance to the bridge from both sides. A small informative plaque sits on the south side of the bridge.

This bridge originally built in 1252 and named after the Church of Santa Trinita located at the northern approach to the bridge. It has been rebuilt many times, the last being in 1958 after being destroyed by the retreating Germans, from the original stones retrieved from the river. The four statues at both ends of the bridge represent the 4 seasons. Makes a good spot to photograph Ponte Vecchio and to utilize to cross the Arno. It is far less crowded than its neighbor to the east.

This bridge has a very long and troublesome history. From the time when Santa Trinita had constructed in 1252, the Arno swept it away four times. Every time the good Florentines reerected it, and the last version built by Duke Cosimo stood for nearly 400 years, resisting the flooding roaring Arno. But this bridge had his fate. In 1944 the Germans bombed it down. For long years only the nearby old church was wearing the Santa Trinita name, but finally thanks to international collaboration, the impressive arched bridge had the hope of the resurrection. The plan was to make as much as possible as it was the original. Every single stone was discovered and collected from the Arno, and even the jewels of the bridge, the for statue of the four seasons came out from the water as well. Only the miserable Spring was headless. For years Florence was searching for the head, till finally in 1961 a diver found it. Now the rebuilding of Holy Trinity is complete and shining in his old glory. The tourists often using it to take perfect photos of the Ponte Vecchio, but it also isn't a bad idea to photograph this bridge from its more famous competitor.

Something to do while in Florence, take a stroll along the waterfront and across the bridge after viewing all the must see museums / cathedrals. Beautiful walk and lovely spot for a quick picnic or even an ice cream. There are plenty of boat cruises available as well.
