Venice Bridge Eleven - Ponte de la Panada

Ponte de la Panada

All this sitting around drinking coffee and fooling with fifteenth century art put us behind on our schedule, so we didn't spend too much time at the eleventh bridge, the Ponte de la Panada, which links two busy shopping streets across a pretty-looking canal. The real intention with the name 'Panada' is lost in antiquity, and modern interpretations vary. It could refer to a locally made soup, or a type of window covering. Your choice.

It's still early morning in Venice as we continued on the Bridge Challenge. Few tourists to be seen, just locals going off to work, and as we left and I took the last photograph, a mother crossing the bridge on her way to take her little girl to school.
