But, there was something quite special at the top of the stairs.

  6. Je connais cette petite corte, j’ai eu la chance de trouver la porte ouverte un jour, le facteur avait oublié de pousser la grille.
    Je peux vous dire exactement où cela se trouve si vous le désirez ?
    à bientôt

  10. Maybe I am wrong but I think it is along the calle which goes to Campo de le gatte, in Castello.

  12. That corte looks so familiar….I’m sure I’ve been by there, deep in Castello. Couldn’t find a picture and if I took one I totally missed that door and shrine.
    Nice catch Yvonne.

  13. I just loved the top photograph Yvonne. I also noticed the 13th century telephone book in the letterbox of the green door on the right of the same photograph. ❤ xox
