I went to Castelfranco, and I saw

A small late 12 century walled city with a moat surrounding it, fed by a diversion from the Torrento Muson. 

The walled section is quite tiny


I walked around the walls, in a pleasant park. The trees dampened the noise of the cars, trucks and buses.

The clock tower is one entry into the walls

I didn't notice the graffiti until I was editing the photos

There was a huge market on, with fresh foods, clothing, kitchen ware .. you name it, they had it.

This looked and smelled so good

Grab a bargain

He had a mobile knife sharpening business

Any old port in a storm ...

And, finally, for you flower lovers

    Makes me think of Old Town in Rhodes and the moat there.

    Lovely Yvonne, grazie for sharing….
    I was thinking like Michelle, how lovely your sunny days look! But knitting/reading in your beautiful apartment there is not a bad alternative 🙂


  3. Aha! But the weather has turned nasty, strong easterly wind, raining, the shutters were crashing like crazy, so they’ve been fastened. Maybe tomorrow is that reading/knitting day again?

    How delightful to have these wonderful sunny days to explore!


  5. Hi, Bert. It’s that Settimana della Cultura thing in Italy. But, I’ve yet to find a bargain.

    Once to Castelfranco, maybe enough? But, I wanted to see those walls.

    Why is it never free admission when I go to Castelfranco?
    True, I’ve only been once.
    My first two photos there were almost identical to yours, Yvonne.


  7. Oh, B the B, there was free admission into his museum .. it was like pearls before the swine with me going in. Sorry. 😦

    I’d better send you a photo from the Duomo, then.

    Oh, the kiddies had folded up their selling tents on Saturday when I went down to look for reading material for you. I’m a bad friend, all round, it seems.

    The home of Giorgione, one of my heroes!
