Processional Walkway

A processional walkway is a ceremonial walkway in use since ancient times. Common functions of a processional walkway are for religious, governmental or celebratory purposes.

Early examples of this type of pedestrian travel way can be found in Egypt, Babylon[1] and Crete. Ancient processional walkways were often associated with the design of palaces such as Phaistos on Minoan Crete.[2]

The processional walkway is also an element of contemporary outdoor garden design.[3]
