thanh toan tile-roofed bridge is an arched wooden bridge, 17m long and 4m wide. on both sides of the bridge length are 2 rows of wooden flat forms and parapets for people to lean their backs. the bridge is roofed with tube. thanh thuy village was established in the 16th century. the village is about 6km from hue city center on the eastward. among the emigrants from thanh hoa following lord nguyen hoang to thuan hoa, there were 12 family heads who settled down there to be the 12 initial families of the village. one niece of the sixth generation of the tran family - mrs tran thi dao - offered the fund to the village to build a wooden bridge so that the villagers on both sides of the canal could transport conveniently and benighted travellers could rest on their way. the thanh toan tile-roofed bridge is not only an ancient architectural remain with highly historic and cultural values but also a tourist attraction. the bridge was built over 2 centuries ago and damaged many times by storms, floods and wars. however, after the bridge was destroyed, the villagers always contributed to repair, renovate and preserve it. the thanh toan bridge with its tile-roof has entered into the moods and aspirations of many generations as well as inspired the poetic souls of the local people and visitors, their contents are still handed down among the people or engraved right on the bridge.

in september 1991, the bridge was greatly renovated according to the old design and officially accepted by the ministry of cultural and information as national remains, a rare and appreciated beauty-spot of the whole country.
