Colle di Val d’Esla…Day 2

posted in: Uncategorized | 12

I got up early and decided to wander the areas that most people don’t go and see what I could find interesting. I immediately got caught up with the wood doors.

The town is divided the bridge. Back in medieval times it was two separate towns and many battles ensued. Having a draw bridge cam in handy. Walking down under the bridge was interesting.

Back on the bridge gave ne a good view of my B&B and the garden where we have breakfast.

The front doors are all different and each one special. From elaborate to simple.

There is a beautiful church on each side of the bridge. This is the largest so I assume that you hat was the sid that had the weathly residents.

I started a new hobby about six months ago to get my off all the stuff I was doing, coloring. I really enjoy it and I love putting the colors together.  I’m not an artist, can’t draw or paint but this is creative in its own way.  I found a great public area that was calling my name.

i found a nice restaurant with an outdoor patio and loomed to have mostly the locals. So that was for me.

I ordered a very tasty pasta with anchovies, fried tomatoes and ricotta cheese.  Loved it!image

    Love the door look. We noticed them too. I agree with the small church look too. Even in the USA I prefer a smaller church and in Florida our church has grown so big I am lost in it but the sermons are so good I hate to leave. Of course not fancy and beautiful like Italy…
