Porciglia Bridge – The phantom ‘Ilii Gate’

0
According to tradition, the Porciglia bridge is the exact spot where the mythical Trojan hero Antenor set foot in Padua and founded the city. For this reason, the area has been dubbed 'Porta Ilii'. Needless to say, this is just a legend, since the name refers more to a 'portilia', a gate that allowed exit from the city towards the river, or at most to a diminutive of 'portus', since there was a river port here.
