The Bridge – 28 June 2007

Author: Paulo Coelho

I discovered it by chance. It was built in 1333. As you cross its 200-meter length, you’ll see 120 captioned triangular paintings from the early 1500s that chronicle the city’s history. The Kapellbrücke was nearly destroyed by a 1993 fire, and much of what stands today is an excellent restoration (or reproduction, if you’re a cynic or uncompromising realist). Please guess where it is.
