Rio Tera Barba Frutariol

This is the street I’m talking about. It used to be a canal. Rio Tera means a “river of dirt” or a former canal.

    “Rio terĂ ” means that the canal was filled in with earth (terra). Nereo – Vogaveneta.it

    • Thanks for adding this explanation. I recently discovered a fascinating map of Venice from 1729 by Lodovico Ughi that shows the original canals and bridges that are no longer there. Very exciting for my research, and a new way to view Venice.
