Stone bridge or Capuchin bridge

A promenade through the historical town begins on Stone bridge or Capuchin's bridge which takes you to the Upper square.
The bridge was built by bishop Leopold in the middle of the 14th century.
The fate wanted that the same bishop, riding across the fenceless bridge, together with his startled horse fell from the bridge and got drowned in the water.
The bridge was built from carved stone in the semicircular form.
It was restored in the year 1888 and equipped with iron fence.
In the middle of the bridge is statue of saint John of Nepomuk  with the coat of arms of Škofja Loka engraved in the socle was set up.
In the Middle Ages there was Selca’s gate with its guarding tower by the bridge.
With its respectable age of more than 600 years  the Capuchin’s bridge is one of the oldest monuments  of its architectural kind in the Central Europe.
