OLD TOWN BY NIGHT


The magical old town of Pinerolo, Piedmont, takes you back to the Middle Ages... Walking through its narrow lanes uphill to this church is like walking back in time, in a magical setting of ancient buildings and secret gardens hidden away behind ancient walls. At night the light is magical... oneiric, almost unreal. The view from the top of the hill is breathtaking!

Pinerolo e' veramente bellissima.
Ho vissuto 9 anni a Torino, non ricordo se l'ho visitata...

Annuk said...

Ciao Gio! :)
Sì, è davvero un incanto! Non sapevo avessi vissuto a Torino... allora sei quasi una mia "compaesana"! :) Non ho una goccia di sangue piemontese nelle vene, ma adoro il mio Piemonte! :)

Thank you Joanna! There's indeed something reminding of Rhodes... While I was wandering around the ancient alleys of Pinerolo's old town, my mind kept wandering to other old towns I have loved... and Rhodes is definitely one of them! I love old towns!!! Filakia! :)

Hello Anna.
WAU - where some beautiful pictures you show, I ♥ these images.
Thank you for your sweet comment to me and my first dog. It was not so old I can not remember it. It was buried in the garden with my grandmother. I pick or small, all the heads of her tulips, and put on Lady's grave., Had seen that lay flowers at people who were not more (my grandfather died in 1947) as Lady would of course also have flowers.
I did not get credit for having done it ..... but never mind, my "old mother" of soon 89 years remembers it yet, and tells me often.
  In my adult life I've had dogs since 1974.
Wishing you and Zoe a good day / good weekend :) Hugs Hanne Bente and Tilde

Annuk said...

Hugs to you and Tilde! :)
