  1. What a great place to visit. I particularly like the view of the stone arch with the mountains behind. The different styles of architecture is wonderful too.

  3. This is such a fascinating place. The village seems pretty normal, but it has rough terrain just behind it. Very pretty!

    I hope you are enjoying this weekend, Cezar and Leia.

  5. Just amazing. And one is allowed to climb up there, on the stones/rocks and wander about as one pleases? That first photo is so dramatic and “dominate” is certainly the right word for it does dominate the landscape! But all the photos are terrific.

    Also, I really like your new hibiscus header!

  6. It just amazes me that these building can still stand after all these years. Can you imagine what life was like in those times? Amazing photographs, simply amazing.

  7. I wonder if the people living there take their history for granted or if many of them become history buffs. It's beautiful to my eyes.

  10. I love to see the old castle nestled right above the new. It's amazing how they used the hills to help build their strongholds. 🙂
