Another Italian marvel…

Portico di San Luca, longest covered walk in the world (3.5 km with 666 arcades). Allowed the good folk of Bologna to keep dry in winter and shaded in summer when they took a stroll up to the sanctuary of the Madonna of San Luca. Constructed in the 17th century with funds donated by the Bolognese great and good.
