In the wall above the entry to Barga
About 6 pm we drove to Barga. As we entered the area I could see ‘New Barga” on the outskirts with newer buildings and ‘Old Barga’ the picturesque medieval hilltop town with a vibrant artistic community. It was an absolute pleasure to get lost and explore the maze within the city walls. My favorite part was the cathedral. As you can see in the photos below, we are already on a hilltop and the first photo is taken from below. The photos where the cathedral is located was extremely picturesque. Probably one of the best panoramic views I’ve seen of the Alpi Apuane. It reminded me of the dramatic scenes -like a egyptian sacrificial altar up high in the sky. It was THAT dramatic!
Making our way up the streets to the Cathedral
Yes, we’re headed up there (cathedral at upper-left)

Can’t pass up this photo op with the Alpi Apuane as the backdrop.
Anybody know what this is?
